Do You Know Where The Summit Bechtel Reserve Is?


So you’ve been hearing all about the Summit, but do you know where it is?

We’ll give you a hint! It has a mean altitude of 1,500 feet, giving it the highest average altitude east of the Mississippi. The capital city is Charleston. And its motto is “Montani semper liberi” or “Mountaineers Are Always Free.”

If you guessed West Virginia, you’re right!

And to be more specific, the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve is in Fayette County, the heart of the Mountain State, and neighbors 70,000 acres of the famous New River Gorge.

This means your new jamboree is home to some of the best whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, and rock climbing in the United States!
