The Companion 2008 has this:
Store at VA608, Lickskillet Hollow, Crandon, VA
0.8 mile east of AT, small grocery store with soda machine outside... (note: 133 miles north of Damascus)

Has anyone been there? when(i.e., is it still open)?

Just want to experience another place along the AT (have been to Trent's)...

Also, is the trail/FS road from Trent's to Dismal Falls obvious?

Thx for any and all feedback....

I dont know about the store on VA608, I'm actually starting there on my section hike to Trail Days though.

The road to dismal falls from Trent's is easy to find. Leaving Trents take a right, then the first right, It's a steady uphill for a mile I think. Theres a sign for dismal falls (you can see the falls from the sign) Cross the stream, climb up the rocks and theres a short connector trail to the AT, I forget if it is blue blazed or not.

Hope that helps!

I forget if Trent's is the store on VA608, i thought the VA608 AT crossing was 3 miles from dismal falls, don't have my maps with me right now. Good burgers at trents though!

Trent's is on VA606 and VA608 is 7 miles south of Dismal Creek Falls.

I will be coming north and then hitch back to Trail Days, hope to meet ya.

Thx..
