Potts Mountain Jeep Trail, VA (several pics)

Ran Potts Mountain a couple times over the past two weeks with my brother (4runner) and another friend (Black Jeep belongs to RUKered on here). First time going top to bottom and this past weekend going bottom to top. Nothing too wild, but a very scenic trail, Figured I'd throw a few photos up. Enjoy.

Google is your friend

It is located in NF lands.
These directins will drop you at the foot of the Jeep trail.
From 311 in New Castle:
turn onto 615 (left if coming from Paint Bank area)
turn left on 609 (Sand Plant Road)
turn left on 611
turn right on 617

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Yep those are the correct directions. You would still be best served to go with someone who has been before as the trail head is not directly off 617. There is a very short gravel access road you have to go down to get to it and it is not labeled so you just have to know where to turn. We found this out the hard way.
