I'm completing my planning for a hike this spring and need some advice regarding a safe location to leave a vehicle for 4 days. We (8 of us) will start at Pine Swamp Branch shelter and hike south to a point in the vicinity of Jenny Knob. I'm told by a well informed source that the parking spot along SR 611 is not a great place to leave a vehicle.
Is there a location on VA 42 but off of 611 or 608 that I cold leave a vehicle that is not likely to get trashed or stolen?
I really need to have the vehicle very close to your end point so that we can start driving back home (northbound) immediately after we complete the hike.
I'm going to drop off my group at PSB, drive to Jenny Knob, park the vehicle and have a shuttle to take me back to PSB where I'll link up with the rest of my crew.
