Nearest town or city: Buena Vista
Directions: Take Route 60 East to Buena Vista. Turn right onto Route 501 and Magnolia Ave. Stay on Route 501 south 14 miles to the intersection with US 130. At the intersection (near the damn) continue straight on US 130 (Route 501 goes to the right to Big Island and Lynchburg. There are some very good views of the tooth from the other side of the river on Route 501. Travel 2 miles on US 130 then take the forest service road on your right If you reach the second ATV trails entrance and the Blue Ridge Parkway you just missed the turn off. You will need 4 WD on this road if it has rained recently, and fallen trees may block the road, so be prepared for a short walk. Drive on the forest service road .5 miles to an obvious pulloff on the right. Take the short trail leading down towards the James River to an old forest service road which is no longer maintained. Turn left and walk along the old forest service road until you begin to see a rock out cropping to your right. An obvious trail will lead you down to the rocks which are located just above the top of The Tooth.
