      The name of the road is Dahlgren Road. It's about a mile long and joins
      with Frost Town Road which connects to Mount Tabor Road which loops back
      into and back into Alt. 40 opposite Bolivar Road. If you haven't driven the
      loop I highly recommend it. I recommend starting at Mt. Tabor Road. The
      last half of it heading up toward the crest will reveal some of the most
      Godawful terrain imagineable for an attack. Imagine the boys in blue down
      at the bottom at Frost Town Road where they assembled, having to attack up
      the hill toward the crest. Has to be seen to be appreciated.
