The 5 rating is for the Parsons, WV to Thomas, WV parts. The Elkins to Parsons is a 3.5 From Parsons to Thomas (or vice versa) there are scenic stops and even without stopping the views are great and you can see the wind farms churning away, while on the mountain top. Great stuff.
The road, as of Oct 2013 is practically flawless. No gravel, maybe a bump here or there, but it is really QUITE smooth. The sweepers are drool inducing.
Elkins is a 5 in amenities. They have everything you could want there. Parsons is a 2 and Thomas is about a 1.5 with them both only have a gas station and or fast food, that I know of.
I love US 219 in WV, especially between Parsons and Thomas. I haven't been further south than Mill Creek, WV on it, but it does look nice down south, too. Elkins to Parson isn't boring, but the goods is between Parson and Thomas.
