Bullpasture Gorge

Bullpasture is a large boulder strewn mountain stream that holds both warmwater and cold water fish. Go west of Staunton on Route 250 until you reach McDowell. You will cross the Bullpasture entering McDowell. The road divides immediately - bear left. Stay on the road about 10 miles until you hit the gorge - you'll know when you reach it - there are steep mountain sides on the right side of the road and a drop to the river on the left and more mountain walls on the far side. The river will start to show Stocked Virginia trout waters signs. From the other direction, wend your way from Route 39 towards Williamsville. The Bull is stocked here and the gorge begins just upstream. Accomodations are in Monterey just up the road from McDowell.
