PATC-MS Buzzard Rocks
From the East-
Take I-66 West to Route 55 West towards Front Royal. Stay on 55 West until the town of Waterlick. Turn left onto Powells Fort Road (Route 678). Drive about 1.2 miles on 678 then turn left onto Mountain Road (Route 619). You'll pass a fish hatchery. Stay on the road for 1.2 miles. You'll come to a Buzzard Rock trailhead parking lot on the right. Pay attention cause it's easy to miss. After parking follow the hiker sign and begin the two mile hike to Buzzard Rock. Follow the white trail blaze.
When you reach the top of the ridge (about 1.8 miles from the parking lot and maybe 100 meters before a prominent rock outcropping immediately abutting the right side of the trail), there is a trail that descends to the right. This is the cliff base trail. It isn't well defined, but it is very easy to follow. If you miss the trail you can rap down to it from any number of trees on the ridge.
