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. This point is officially in Section 35 hence the negative mile marker. 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.
