Directions: From Mt. Storm, WV where Rt. 42 intersects U.S. Rt. 50 – proceed about 4 miles on 42 South and bear right at the Liberty Gas station onto Rt. 93 towards Davis / Thomas. Continue about 3 more miles and just before the dam and powerplant, bear left onto the gravel road just opposite of the boat launch sign.
