Located in central Fayette County, Beury Mountain Road is a twisting and winding gravel road that weaves through oak and hickory forests in the highlands east of New River Gorge. This road passes through the Buery Mountain Wildlife Management Area, connecting the towns of Maplewood and Thurmond. The road is an easy gravel road, one to two vehicles wide the entire way, with plenty of passing opportunities. The road's western end descends down the hillside rather quickly, losing 860' of elevation in 3 miles. You'll make your way through three tight switchbacks before ending at the historic coal town of Thurmond, which boasts only 5 year-round residents. Camping is prohibited in the management area but can be found nearby in the Babcock State Park and the national river area. This road is suitable for any stock SUV or pickup truck.
