The turnoff from the Blue Ridge Parkway onto VA 799 is about 50 feet north of milepost 174. At the end of the one-mile stretch on VA 727, the road bears sharply right and uphill onto a very short but very rocky and rough stretch that soon arrives at a crossroads. Turn right onto the good quality road and reach the parking area in 3/4 mile. Once on the summit, the "BM" is a metal stem in a concrete base, as described in the data sheet.
