Description

This fire road starts off of Skyline Drive and crosses between and across both the White Oak Canyon trail and the Limberlost Trail within a half mile of the Drive. Continuing down from the ridge, the road joins the Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail. Within a couple hundred yards to the north on the Skyland-Big Meadows Horse Trail, the fire road continues off to the right (east) as the Old Rag Road.
