I am heading to Annaplois Rock tomorrow Saturday 4/13/13, rain or shine and will park on Route 40. Everyone is welcome and I know this is short noticed and will do it again next Saturday, 4/20/13 at the same time and same place.
The trailhead is located off of Route 40, just East of Greenbrier State Park. The parking area is located on the south side of Route 40 (left side heading west, right side heading east). The only real good identifying sign is a Smokey Bear fire condition sign across from the parking area. From the parking lot, head to the West side of the lot where you will find a trail sign. Follow the blue blazes a short distance until you meet with the Appalachian Trail (A.T) near the Route 70 overpass. Turn right (North) onto the A.T. and proceed.
