Ascent Trip Report

Just up the street from the interstate I turned left at the light (there's a Sheetz on the corner) for Va. 644 (I saw no route number posted but it's signed Frontier Road. It loops around with a turn at a stop light and ending up on rt.11. Shortly thereafter you should find Betsey Bell Rd. heading uphill to the lovely Betsey Bell City Wilderness Park. You can drive to a turnaround at the top a few feet from the highest spot. Previous county high pointers have taken 250 to 11 in the center of town and then left on 11. This route avoids traffic.
