Peters Creek Ridge is an easy dirt road that travels a ridgeline along the northern boundary of the Gauley River National Recreation Area. The road starts at Laurel Creek and runs nearly 5 miles before reaching a closed gate at a private property near Stillhouse Branch. The landowners of this property do allow public access through their property, but you must call or visit them for egress. The gate has a waiver you must sign and contact information for the landowners. If you receive permission to travel the remaining 0.6 miles, the road ends at Peters Creek, directly across from Panther Mountain Road. This road provides several viewpoints of the Gauley River and is generally one to one and a half vehicles wide. It is suitable for any high clearance vehicle, but 4-wheel drive might be needed during wet conditions.
