Take-out: 11.9 miles north on US19 of Fayetteville, you will cross the Meadow River. Take a U-turn at the turn just past the bridge. Park on the shoulder of the freeway just before the bridge.

Put-in: How you get turned around to head the opposite way is up to you… there is a spot for an illegal U-turn just before the bridge. Or you have to go 3 miles to the first legal spot to turn around. Go towards Summersville 1.4 miles on US-19 before turning right onto Mt Lookout Rd. Follow this for 2.1 miles to a sharp right turn onto WV-41. Follow this for 4.4 miles to the bridge. Park just past the Post Office on the left.
