Hiked the road part of the way
Actually drove to Flagpole. Then hiked to the end of the fireroad that goes into West Virginia from Bother Knob and back. The next day, hiked to Pond Knob, then Oak Knob and part way down the trail to the East before turning around and hiking back to camp at Flagpole. Trails are well marked.
Nice view and some solitude
Parked about a mile up the road and hiked it from there. Easy, fun, but incoming storms kept me moving fast.
Parked beyond spring when road got too muddy
Hiked in with my dog. We elected not to drive our 4x4. We also hiked part way up from Hone Quarry but left due to darkness. Very steep on the Hone Quarry trail. Beautiful forests.
