Big Draft Wilderness


Big Draft Wilderness includes over five thousand acres of mountains, forests and streams.  There are three trails that provide fourteen miles of hiking.  The Anthony Creek Trail provides access to the creek, while the other two trails wind on top of ridges.  Much of this area does not have trails, so cross country travel is plentiful.  


Big Draft Wilderness is located in eastern West Virginia, north of Lewisburg.
The Google Maps directions below are to the Blue Bend trailhead.  The Greenbrier River/Anthony trailhead gives access to the South Boundary Trail at the Anthony Rd. bridge.
