From Welch, follow WV Route 103 south to WV Route 161, then follow the latter and County Route 84 to Anawalt. From Anawalt, follow County Route 8 to the WMA. Several administrative roads and trails provide interior access for foot travel only. The area supports hunting opportunities for deer, bear, squirrel, turkey and ruffed grouse. A seven-acre pond supports a warmwater fishery and is stocked with trout from February through May. Camping is prohibited. Information provided by WVDNR
