To reach Rich Mountain Battlefield from the East (Beverly): Turn off Rt 250 west onto Rich Mountain Road. Follow the RMBF signs 5 miles to the Battlefield, at the very top of the mountain pass. (Much of this road is gravel-surfaced). Continue following Rich Mountain Road another 1 1/2 miles further west to the bottom of the mountain to see the Camp Garnett area. To reach the site from the West (Rt 33): At the Norton Exit off Rt 33 (1.4 miles east of the stoplight intersection with Rt 250) turn right onto Rt 151. When Rt 151 comes to a T-intersection, turn right and cross the bridge. Just across the bridge, turn left to Norton. Continue 4 miles, then turn left toward Mabie. Continue an additional 2 miles, then bear left onto Rich Mountain Road. Continue about 1.5 miles to Field of Fire Park and Camp Garnett. The battlefield lies another 1.5 miles further, at the peak of the road pass.
