Washington Heritage Trail


Morgan County


Morgan county is the westernmost segment of the Trail and the area most steeped in wilderness, filled with twisting mountain roads, spectacular views and interesting rock formations. The populated central Sleepy Creek valley includes the famed warm mineral waters of Berkeley Springs and the historic spa and art town of the same name that surrounds them. Visitor information, year ‘round lodging, shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities are focused in Berkeley Springs.

Nearly a century after the original settlement of a town around the springs by colonial health seekers including George Washington, his family and friends, Morgan County was formed in 1820 from sections of neighboring Berkeley and Hampshire counties. Berkeley Springs was and remains the county seat, economic and cultural center. Various industries have thrived in the county through the centuries including sand mining, railroads, cultivation and canning of tomatoes, tanneries and timber. The only economic activity that spans all the county’s history is tourism, thanks to the presence of the famed warm springs.

Explore the 54 miles of Trail and 16 sites throughout the county, meet friendly people and experience a pair of rivers with public access; a pair of forested mountain ranges with hiking trails; a pair of state parks, one with a golf course, the other a spa; and a pair of towns, both historic.
