Morgan County Section of WHTThe three counties of the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia -- Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson -- make up the Washington Heritage Trail. Experience a rich timeline of American history that includes a colonial spa town, sites of early industries, railroad landmarks and Civil War locations. The footsteps of America's first president are particularly prominent, along this 127-mile driving trail named for George Washington and approved as a National Scenic Byway and West Virginia Scenic Byway.

Although George Washington's footsteps are the primary focus of the trail, sites in the three counties make the trip one of discovery for travelers interested in everything from architecture to scenic wonders.

From his first visit as a teenage surveyor through the reading of his will more than 50 years later, Washington owned land, visited friends and supported industry in the Eastern Panhandle.

The 80-mile segment of the trail here in Morgan County is centered around Berkeley Springs and continues on to its westernmost terminus in Paw Paw. We'll begin begin the tour, which could take an afternoon or a weekend, where George did --at "ye fam'd warm springs."
