Dang, Aarrff, I would have been tempted to ride around that.
Anyone going to the top there are several roads you can take. I took Sawmill Road. It is 17 miles from Hwy 28. Sawmill road is mostly gravel with a couple of very steep dirt switch backs.
There is a lake at the top and a bunch of options on getting down. I was low on gas so I went back the way I came.
The view from the top is incredible.

Grabbed! TVR breakfast ride turned into a tag grab. We had a blast riding from Paint Bank VA to Spruce Knob via all the twisty roads we could find.
