Deer Lake Lodge Trail #664
1.4 mi - Moderate - The trail proceeds southwestward, crossing Wolf Branch and passing a small, seasonal, pond called Camp Deer Lake. There are several side trails that lead back to SR 806, but most have directional arrows that assist in staying on the correct path. This trail has several interpretive signs along it that pertain to forest management practices, and areas that demonstrate the various stages of managed woodland. The trail ends at FS 479E (Ledford Branch Road) just short of Ledford Branch; a left turn here will very quickly take one to FS 479 (Bent Creek Road). Another left turn shortly brings one back to SR 806, in the vicinity of the entrance to the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area—about ¾ of a mile from the road’s aforementioned intersection with FS 491.
