Trail Overview

At just under 5 miles, Poe Paddy Drive passes two beautiful vistas on its way from Pine Swamp Road to Poe Paddy State Park. This road can be broken into two sections as a passenger car can be driven most of the way including to the vistas. Once you pass the second vista, approximately 3.5 mi from Pine Swamp Road, the road changes, and a vehicle with higher clearance is required. As you start descending, the road turns rocky with occasional washes. Two switchbacks later and you arrive at the campground at Poe Paddy State Park.
