Devil’s Gap


We went to the Blackrock area of Ghost Wilderness on a windy day.
We went there before in May of 2006 with our Jeep
On the way we saw two cowboys.

We left our vehicle and trailer before the Big Hill and drove to Devil’s Gap with the quad.

The dogs love it!
There are some lovely trails and camping spots in the area.
As we didn’t have a park permit we turned around and then took the quad to the Blackrock mountain area.
