Description

Winding Stair Gap Road is a fun descent, for a forest road. There are not many places in the area where you can enjoy nearly four miles of uninterrupted downhill. Just be careful around the corners as you'll encounter the odd vehicle coming up the road. And the area is used for US Army Ranger training, so if you happen upon a practice ambush, just stop and the guys with M-16's will tell you when you can proceed.

And if you like climbing, it can of course be taken from south to north.

These roads are great for hiking if the Bull Mountain trails are too wet or if it's freeze-thaw season. Wear orange if it's hunting season.
