I was thinking of heading out to Deep Run and Hampton Forge to do some photography. What's a good way in? Hampton Road? Glossy Spung? I'm willing to walk a bit but not hours. I drive a Forester. Thanks.

Both HF and 206 are OK. You can drive Hampton road to it but roads in are posted.

As Ed mentioned, don't drive into Deep Run. Make sure you park and walk.

It is really wet back there at the far end. But I found that the most interesting place. Especially really far back. You can walk even further than I did in the below map. I was looking for what may have been an old sawmill base where the arrow is pointing, but nothing was there. But I liked the area. Really remote.

Pines; Bamber area
I was thinking of our trip Seven Scenic Savannas. It was south of there. We missed a few savannas on that trip, and could do a different one in same area but not as long.
