"From Point Pleasant, West Virginia, follow Rt. 62N to CR 1-1, Potters Creek Road. Travel Potters Creek Road for approximately 3/4 mile to the first barricaded road on the left side of the road. This is near the area of the "Storage Bunkers". Park near Potters Creek Road at the first barricade on the left. Follow the old road to the end (North, approximately 1200 yards). The road will start a gradual turn to the right (East). Travel this road in an Easterly direction for approximately 1/2 mile, the road forks. Travel the left another 300 yards. Enter the woods to the left (North). The Clendenin Cemetery is approximately 200 yards toward the top of the hill. The cemetery can also be found by traveling the road past Pond 34, but it requires changing paths several times."
