Hike from Long Mountain Wayside to Cow Camp Gap – A-6 Intruder Wreckage

Rate this Entry

Quick video of the hike from Long Mountain Wayside on Route 60 up over Bald Knob (not bald) to the intersection with the Old Hotel Trail to Cow Camp Gap. On the front half is 1986' elevation gain in 2.8 miles, all up, relentless. We went off trail around mile 3.3 to find some aircraft wreckage from an A-6 Intruder that went down there. We were successful! For those interested, the coordinates are here: N37° 44.635' W79° 13.220' The trail is dry along this section, so if you camp at the tent site up by Bald Knob, you’ll need to bring water.
