July 16, 2016 Glade Springs Trail Hike

Members of KVVP and friends / guests hiked the Glade Creek trail near Prince WV US on Friday, 15 July 2016, and on Saturday, 16 July 2016. The weather was “most excellent” on Friday (72 ⁰ Fahrenheit and cloudy, with low humidity) and even more “most excellent” on Saturday (72 ⁰ Fahrenheit and sunny, with low humidity), although Saturday’s hike ended with rolling thunder and a bit of a downpour during the last 10 minutes of the hike back to the car. All five hikers on Friday completed a 6-mile circuit from the New River trailhead to the Glade Creek footbridge and back. Three of the seven hikers on Saturday completed the 6-mile circuit, while the other four completed a 3-mile circuit from the trailhead to a point above the falls and back. A wonderful time was had by all. Glade Creek offered itself as a picturesque back-drop to the hike as well as a constant source of babbling water falling over the rocks, coursing over a 400-foot drop from the footbridge to the trailhead. The birders enjoyed the hike, spotting some favorite birds – visually and via auditory means – although the babbling brook prohibited hearing all of the bird calls. Nonetheless, the creek also offered catch and release trout fishing (which a few of the hikers plan to pursue in another visit in a few weeks) as well as refreshing swimming opportunities in its cool waters. We wish you could have been with us!
