Trail Overview

Near the town of New Castle, VA, are the remnants of many small mining towns. This route passes by the Fenwick Mines area, which has a small recreation day-use area and hiking trails. The route runs along the top of a ridgeline with sweeping east and west views of the area. The surface is mostly natural rock with many mud holes of varying depth. There are a few dispersed camping areas along the route. The area is crisscrossed by other forestry routes leading to other abandoned mining areas. Cell service in the area is very spotty.
