Saint Marys Wilderness Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This historic hike drops off the Blue Ridge Parkway to explore an old mine site, now reverted to nature, as part of the Saint Marys Wilderness, within the confines of the George Washington National Forest.
From the highlands, you will pass along Mine Bank Creek, which boasts numerous splashing waterfalls and cascades. Open into the Saint Marys River valley, then head to a riverside ore-processing locale, where concrete remnants and grown-over slag piles reveal an industrial past that belies the splendor of the Saint Marys Wilderness."
