Ritchie Trail

  Gotta get out of the city man, and Ritchie Trail in Bath County, Virginia is a really good place to spend some time. No chance of getting bored in Virginia if you like the outdoors. A trip to Douthat State Park when you're here at Ritchie Trail is a wonderful idea, and Ritchie Trail is not far at all from Bacova. Stay the night at Hidden Valley Campground, and Dunns Gap is a nice place to stop by. You'll need more than a day to look at everything Ritchie
    Trail has to offer, you can camp at Virginia Power. If you donít have a problem getting wet, you can always go whitewater paddling on Wilson Creek. Jackson River has a great whitewater paddling spot nearby. The high level of precipitation
makes Ritchie Trail a pretty wet place. July is the wettest month with most rain, and February on the other hand is the driest. Through the long summer days highs here at Ritchie Trail reach the 80's, and through the night it cools down to the 50's. The wintertime brings highs down to the 30's with temperatures at Ritchie Trail dipping down into the 10's throughout winter nights.
