Little Schloss in the George Washington National Forest is the sister hike to the more famous Big Schloss. Probably with reason… unlike Big Schloss, this one is a climb all the way to the top. On a fall day with foliage colors popping, all that work to a nearly empty summit is beyond worthwhile!
Though a gentle and short hike at just under 3 miles, Tibet Knob in the George Washington National Forest offers spectacular views. While probably not worth the long drive from D.C. by itself, the hike would make a good combination with Big Schloss or a camping trip to Wolf Gap.
