1. Evitt's Mountain Homesite Trail
The marker uses the name Evart, while the trail to the homesite uses the name Evitt. The trailhead can be reached from several access trails, some of which are known as the Rocky Trail, and Lakeside Loop Trail. See Rocky Gap State Park trail maps for details. Four bears crossed the trail in front of us on our return down the mountain, but they scampered away as soon as they saw us, too quickly for us to get a picture.
