Our second hike for the weekend was at the War Spur Loop by Mountain Lake. It is easy to find, just take 460 West from VA Tech until you see the sign for Mountain Lake (it will be on the right). Follow this road for about 20 mins or so, pass the hotel, and then take a left at the fork (if you turn right, you will end up at some Bio Station). You will eventually see the trail head on the right along with a parking lot. The trail itself is a 2.5 mile loop with a great overlook in the middle (see pics below). If you are hiking the AT, there is also a connector trail here.
