Nawghaw Poa Road is accessed from Democracy Drive, which is on the south edge of Henderson, and time will tell what turns out to be the best access route. For now, the best access is via Bicentennial Parkway and Via Firenze to Democracy Drive.
From Democracy Drive (Table 1, Site 1779), Nawghaw Poa Road runs south and passes through a gate where inbound traffic can be blocked. Outbound traffic can bypass the gate by driving over road spikes when exiting the area after the gate is closed.
The paved Nawghaw Poa Road winds up the hillside for 0.7 miles to the parking lot and Visitor Contact Station at the trailhead (Site 1194). A paved bicycle and walking trail parallels the road.
Note that Nawghaw Poa Road is open only when the contact station is open.
