   Poor           Great



 
From the west: Take Exit 52 off I-77. Go about 0.5 miles east to downtown Bland. Go left and then in a short distance go right (east) on VA 42. From this point tit is about 13 miles to the intersection with VA 606. Go left on the VA 606 for 0.3 miles (according to my odometer) to the trail crossing. From the east: From the intersection of VA 100 and VA 42 south of Pearisburg, follow VA 42 west for about 10 miles to the intersection with VA 606. Go right 0.3 miles to the trail crossing. . GPS of trail crossing N37.1706 W80.9021 There were hiker logo signs indicating the trail crossing of VA 606 when I hiked this section.. Just before the crossing look for a short driveway leading down to a dirt parking area. This is on the left (west ) side of the road if coming from VA 42. The marker on the attached map indicates the entrance to the parking area. Rotate the street view to the west from this point to see the entrance. GPS at entrance: N37.1702 W80.9019 Warning: In wet weather, this parking area can become a mud hole. I saw other parking pull-offs further up and down the road that might also be used. Walk north along the road for a short distance to the actual trail crossing. At the crossing the northbound trail goes right and the southbound trail goes left soon crossing the Kimberling Creek footbridge. The Appalachian Trail overlay seen on the map is slightly off. 10/24/09 Updated 05/25/19 3-4 in lot

The parking area is muddy and can hold about 3/4 cars if parked reasonably. 04/21/19 Added by editor:The marker on the map attached here indicates the actual trail crossing. GPS:N37.1706 W80.9021 The northbound trail Section 34 can vaguely be seen in the north street view from the point of the marker. It goes off to the right. The southbound trail to Section 35 is clearly visible in the west street view going of to the left.

The community of Crandon is on VA 42 14 miles west of the intersection of VA 42 and VA 100. It is 9.5 miles east of "downtown" Bland. The intersection of VA 608 and VA 42 is in Crandon. Follow VA 608 north for 0.9 miles . There should be a parking pull-off on the right. The marker on the attached map indicates this point. GPS: N37.1570 W80.9612 The name of the road on the Google Map is Price Ridge Road, not Lickskillet Hollow Road, the name given in the AT guide to SW Virginia. The northbound trail goes east from VA 608 at the parking lot. This would be on the right if coming from Crandon. The southbound trail goes south along the road for 0.1 miles before going west back into the woods. See next to last photo in Pictures for this section (35) for a view of the parking area. 2-3
