Short Mountain Wildlife Management Area
Short Mountain WMA (8,005 acres) Hampshire County. Traveling from U.S. Route 50, turn south at Augusta onto county Route 7 (Augusta-Rio Road), drive approximately eight miles and turn left at the Short Mountain WMA sign. Two mountain ridges form a long horseshoe-shaped basin, nearly all of which is covered in mixed oak and Virginia pine. Hunting for turkey, deer, squirrel and ruffed grouse can be rewarding. One-half mile of North River crosses the area and is stocked with trout. Six primitive camp grounds are distributed around the area. A nominal camping fee is charged. Owned by WVDNR.
