More Info: Do you remember the movie “Wrong Turn,” described like this: Six people find themselves trapped in the woods of West Virginia, hunted down by "cannibalistic mountain men grossly disfigured through generations of in-breeding."? Be warned: when you head up to Shannondale for the IncestuHash Trail, you better not take the wrong turn!
Stick to the marked trails and you should (we hope!) be fine! No street lights out here, so bring cranium lamps! Its officially fall and the Sun knows it! Closing circle will be outside (alternate location if it rains), and nights are getting chilly, so bring warm clothing. $5 hash as snacks and beer will be provided. Just Hunter naming at end circle! Both hikers and runners welcome! A to B so bring a dry bag of clothes/shoes for bag vehicle. ON- Just the Tip! -ON
So what is Hashing? Wikipedia knows! Click HERE to find out! Generally, trail markings for W3H3 will be a chalk line or a flour blob is a Mark, find three and you are ON-ON but find an X and you are on a False Trail. Circles are Checks meaning trail could go in any direction so look for the next mark! Find an arrow with three lines in it and you are on the True Trail. Hares may get more creative, which you will learn at Chalk Talk before trail!
