    Default Rock Gap NC Question

    I'm looking to do a section from Rock Gap to Dick's Creek over Thanksgiving. Plan to leave vehicle at Dicks and shuttle to Rock Gap - shuttle driver is asking if it is paved to Rock Gap as he won't drive on gravel roads. Does anyone know the answer - want to make sure I can actually get to Rock Gap/Standing Indian Campground and if not find another shuttle driver.

    Thanks

    I believe I recall it being paved, not the best pavement but I don't recall it being gravel. Sounds like you need to call Ron Brown instead or Beverly.

    I know the road is paved at Rock Gap. If i remember correctly the pavement ends near the back country parking area past the campground entrance.

    The one who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been.

    I have always felt that someone willing to shuttle me into the backcountry as a profession shouldn't have to be asking me what the road conditions are on the way there.

    Thanks to everyone for their response. I agree - was iffy on the shuttle driver but have never shuttled before so wasn't sure. Always appreciate everyone's help on this forum.
