    This 9.0 mile trip has 1200' elevation gain and is suitable for beginner and above backpackers.


    The Otter Creek, Mylius, Shavers Mountain, and Hedrick Camp Trail Loop is a captivating 9-mile hike in West Virginia's Otter Creek Wilderness. Beginning at Otter Creek Campground, the trail winds along Otter Creek, offering serene forest views. As it ascends Shavers Mountain, rocky outcrops provide panoramic vistas. Descending via the Hedrick Camp Trail, hikers traverse rhododendron groves back to Otter Creek. This loop promises a memorable adventure through diverse landscapes, from tranquil creekside paths to rugged mountain summits, making it an ideal journey for outdoor enthusiasts seeking both challenge and natural beauty.

    All trip details including equipment list, meeting location, and driving directions will be provided by email the week before the trip. WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as a member benefit. Let the trip leader know if you need to borrow any equipment.
