Trail Overview

A county dirt track running primarily along the Shavers Fork River in Randolph and Tucker counties. The majority of the track lies in Monongahela NF. Careful attention should be paid to private property boundaries along the river. The track is a mix of gravel and dirt easily traversed by most vehicle types. Pay attention to local forestry signage about area dispersed camping use. Stuart Recreation area along the route provides camping, swimming, and other activities. Bear Heaven Campground offers primitive fee camping. The route also gains elevation at points and passes by the Bickle Knob fire tower with 360-degree views of the area.

Beautiful road from beginning to end. Lots of views for this time of year. I imagine once there's leaves on the trees the views will be alot less. Road is well taken care of.
