If you use exit 19 of Interstate 79 north, turn right and then left on rte 119 north toward Spencer. Go until you cross into Roan county. You will cross a bridge and then the next right (across a stone bridge). This is the road to Amma. After about three miles, Clio road will turn to the left. Go about a half mile, cross a small bridge and immediately turn left. This is DAVES RUN. Go about a mile or less and you will come to a small creek crossing. Cross and park on the left of the road.
