From Charleston; a half hour North on Route 79 (see exit 29 for food, shopping and hardware!) -
Take Exit 34 at Wallback and head South on 36 through Valley Fork to Maysel (about 5 miles). Bear right onto 4 South at Carols Crossroads Best and continue another 3 miles or so; through Paxton and Varneytown and turn left on Elk River / Elkhurst Rd.
The property will be on your left (the high side of the road) and begins just before the first road on your left (Samples Mnt rd, 13/2 or County HWY 5/3, or Long Sam rd - the name changes with the season).
The entrance to the property is about 1500 feet further South and starts in the wash known as John's Branch. The path up is John's Hollow Rd.
With your back to the road facing the wash, the lots are up and to the left. That's also where the parking is. Bring loping shears, a machete or weed-wacker - and go for it! There really shouldn't be more than weeds in the way of getting up to a reasonably flat spot (behind the old out-house) where you can park.
There's also a path leading straight back along the wash. For future reference this is John's Branch-Trail. This is a separate entrance sharing only the last 50 ft to the road. It accesses an interesting high rocky spot in the fork where the two branches come together and contains about 20 acres. Offers will be considered.
