Foamhenge is still there, but it is deteriorating. Hope Prof. Cline makes repairs soon. Look for a whitewashed fence on the west side of the road, about 1 mile north of Natural Bridge. Steep climb to site.

Cool little spot -- you can barely see it from the road though! The entrance has a white plank fence with a metal gate in the middle. Definitely worth a stop if you are traveling along I-81, but don't expect it to look like the pictures on the site. The comments about animals, vandals and paint coming off are true. Stop messing with this place, vandals!

Styrofoam is not a material for the ages, or even a decade of Virgina weather.

I will second the tip about the mud. It's red clay mud and it is deep (granted, it did just rain for two days). Looks like Foamhenge has seen better days, with peeling paint and animals making holes in the "stones." Still a cool site and worth the trip! I will never make it to the real deal so I am glad we made the stop.
