Trail Overview

Located in the Amhurst county portion of the George Washington National Forest this is easy gravel trail has a lot to offer. Reservoir road runs parallel to the Pedlar river which offers great trout fishing opportunities and is stocked during the VA trout season (Oct.1 - Apr 15). This particular track takes you halfway down Reservoir Rd from north to south then a short stent down Shady Mountain road to Litte Irish Creek Rd. There is a small waterfall and a nice swimming hole near the intersection of Shady Mountain road and Litte Irish Creek Rd. Once on Little Irish Creek Rd, there is a number of dispersed camping spots that are right on the creek. Aside from fishing, this route crosses the Appalachian Trail and hunting is also permitted in the GWNF.
