Capon Springs tour led by Jonathan Bellingham
I-81 / Exit 296 for Strasburg. Turn left on Rt. 55 West and follow 12 miles to road on right marked Capon Springs Grade (Rt. 609). Rt. 609 is exactly 2 miles after crossing bridge at Duck Run. Follow this dirt road for 3½ miles to Capon Springs.
*Driver’s Notes – Capon Springs Grade (Rt. 609) begins in VA. If you cross the WV state line while still on Rt. 55, you have gone too far. However, to avoid the dirt road, continue on Rt. 55 to Wardensville, another 7 miles. Turn right on Rt. 259 North and continue for 6 miles to Capon Lake. Turn right on Rt. 16, Capon Springs Rd, crossing bridge, and continue for 4 miles to Capon Springs. Adds approximately 15 minutes to trip.
