Potts Mountain Road runs along the ridge of Potts Mountain and is a great connector trail from the paved route 311 after running Potts Mountain Jeep Trail or for taking a gentle stroll through the mountains when connected with Sweet Springs Turnpike. The road is hard-packed gravel and dirt and only offers views when around the two cell towers or when the trees are bare. Be advised there is a patch of private property in the southern to middle end of the road. As you drive, you will notice most of the tree bark and granite boulders are covered in green lichen, indicating plenty of shade and moisture year-round. One pre-existing campsite was found facing east. Anticipate hard bottom water/mud holes and potholes. Suitable for any high clearance vehicle.
