Directions

Montebello is located at the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Nelson County, Virginia, 8.5 miles from US 11 to the west and 22 miles from US 29 to the east. The firehouse is at the intersection of VA 56 & VA 667. The address is 15 Fork Mountain Lane, Montebello, VA 24464.

Note:
GPS systems  frequently direct you to Campbells Mountain Road (VA 814). This is too dangerous for trailers. Please, follow the directions below.

VA 56 is a winding, narrow and steep two-lane road that runs both east and west of the firehouse. The best  approach is to use the Blue Ridge Parkway which is more scenic and relatively flat.
