Iíve read great things about Dolly Sods for years but have never gone because of concerns over the roads needed to access trailheads which are apparently all unpaved. I do not own a car. When I want to go somewhere requiring a car, like to Shenandoah NP, I borrow a van from a family member. I donít want to risk damaging a vehicle that is not mine, obviously. Itís a regular passenger van (Pacifica) with limited ground clearance. Any advice on Dolly Sods in terms of roads to potentially avoid? Looking for the easiest/shortest point of access.

My other option would be to rent a car to make the trip, although I believe some rental agreements have prohibitions on unpaved roads.

Iíll either do a day hike or an overnight, if I can get away for more than a day.

Thanks.
