Trail Overview

This Forest Service road has beautiful views of the Appalachian Mountains and 4WD is not required to see them. You will see several campsites right off the road, but there's one with a spectacular view of the mountains at 38.58666, -79.05788. This campsite is large enough for several rigs to set up and sits at the end of a short trail off FSR 72. This road has a stretch of single-track road going upwards around the mountain, but once on top, it widens out with plenty of room to pass oncoming traffic.

Difficulty

There is a stretch of single-track road going around the mountain on the east side if turning off or headed towards Hopkins Gap Road. There are not many spots to pass oncoming traffic. Beware of soft spots on the road shoulder. Locals say people have gone over the edge in the past.
