McAllister Fields Trail begins at a Forest Service gate on top of Brushy Mountain. The trail is not blazed but is easy to follow since it is on an old roadbed. As it heads towards the knob it passes through several old clearcuts. This trail was the haul road for an old timber sale.
As McAllister Fields Trail begins it offers views of the valleys to the east and west. The eastern side of the mountain is very steep in this section and the views of Peter's Mountain and the valley below are unobstructed. The trail then stays on the western side of the mountain and passes through the first clearcut. There are wildlife openings on the left side of the trail where views of Batlick Mountain and the mountains into West Virginia re visible.
