Mountain valleys, tree lined roads, scenic overlooks, waterfalls, historic landmarks. WOW! This is a continuation of a trip listed in West Virginia (- Peterstown to Sweet Springs).

Road Quality: 4

Super nice road quality. Hills, mountains, valleys, twisties, sweepers, cruisers. Something for everyone.



Added by bmerryder (2/18/12): The mountain pass is twisty and there are no opportunities for gawking, after that there are miles of valley views and rolling hills, streams and more hills, idyllic.

Road Quality

Super nice road quality. Hills, mountains, valleys, twisties, sweepers, cruisers. Something for everyone.

Added by bmerryder (2/18/12): The first 10 miles has a perfectly cambered mountain pass before beautiful rolling terrain takes over. The mountain pass is unlike any I've ridden, the cambers tilt into the slope making cornering a true joy, smooth well maintained

Roadside Amenities

Anything from small towns, mom & pop eateries to world class resorts like the Homestead. Golf anyone?

Very nice ride. Plenty of good curves and also some sections you can really turn it on. Lots of other roads nearby that are also good rides. I ride parts of this route quite often.
