The route starts on Route 39 in Lexington, VA (where I-64/81 split in the West/Central portion of the state). Take Route 39 all the way to Marlinton, WV ... about 100 miles.
The route goes on past this destination but I turned South on Rte 220 so I can not verify the rest of the route.
Tree lined curves and hills with adjacent river in part. A large portion of the route travels through the lush green George Washington National Forest ... check out the Google map (online map link below) and click on the Satellite button to see the lush green hills you'll be passing through!!!
The road is great for those who crave the winding, twisting, grade changes along the way. Some parts of the road had some slightly less than smooth pavement but overall was nice.
Some small towns along the way to refresh yourself and the bike at the local gas station and/or pub. Not really anything to do off the bike but take this one for the scenery and road quality anyway.
