The Hanshaw property rises from a low point right at the northern entrance road, to the top of a very substantial hill
at its southern border at Hanshaw road. As a consequence of the southern hill, all trails have some steep passages.
The West trail is by far the easiest to navigate.
Trails in addition to the ones detailed here will be added over time. There are many acres that show no signs of recent passage and
well designed trails through them will add enjoyable alternative travel routes to the returning rider or walker.
This map shows the locaton of the Hanshaw property relative to Lawton and Limestone.
Access to the property is a branch off the existing Tick Ridge Trail, down a partially paved road named Davis Trail to Rt. 1620.
The trail follows Rt 1620 northwest for about 150 feet, and then it follows an unpaved private road for about 200 feet until it enters
the actual Hanshaw property. No part of the Hanshaw property fronts directly on Rt 1620. The total property area is about 100 acres.
Western egress from the Hanshaw property is onto Hanshaw Rd. (unpaved). Hanshaw Rd. eventually becomes Mushroon Rd. (paved) which ends
at Rt 174 in Lawton, next to the old Raybourn Store. Just before it intersects with Rt 174, Mushroom Rd. crosses the bed of the
old C&O railroad right of way.

This is the PVA map for the Hanshaw property (parcel "4"). The dotted line indicates that the northermost portion of the property is in Carter County,
while the bulk of it is in Elliott County.
Davis Trail Rd. is the "hockey stick" in the upper right corner which intersects with Rt. 1620. Rt 1620 has moderate traffic (about like Ben's Run Rd.).
The squigly line just west of the Davis Trail Rd./Rt 1620 intersection approximates the route of the private access road to the Hanshaw property.
There are a number of homes on a continuation of Hanshaw Rd. named Golden Conn Rd. near its intersection with Rt. 1620 (on the extreme right).
There are very few residences in the immediate area of the Hanshaw property.
