Enter East side of Drive, Jarman's Gap road and go right (south) at first intersections with the AT. Ascend Calf mountain for 1. 5 miles, until reaching Calf Mtn cabins spur. Spur trail is about .5 mi each way. Return to AT, passing peak of Calf Mountain, followed a clearing with views at 3 miles. Continue on AT south, passing through an old apple orchard, descending to the Skyline Drive. Cross the road at Beagle Gap, and ascend Bear Den Mtn to reach the peak. At the summit there are communication towers, and tractor seats placed there by the previous owners of Royal Orchards. Passing the towers, find the gravel road that circles the mountain, intersecting with the AT.
