Written Directions

In Berkeley Springs, the intersection of Rt. 9 (Union St.) and Rt. 522, go West on Rt. 9 until reaching the intersection of Rt. 9 and Rt. 29. About 3.5 miles south of Paw Paw, WV.

Scenery

Picturesque farms, scenic overlooks, mountain views, rivers, wildlife this little piece of highway has it all.

Road Quality: 4

Would get 5 stars if not for the possibility of deer and a few spots where rock slides are possible. With what this road has to offer it reminds you why you ride. This road was made for 2 wheels.

Roadside Amenities:: 2

Berkeley Springs is a very cool town. nice little restaurants and art galleries. Otherwise not much until Paw Paw. Note: Watch for deer, slide areas and on coming traffic.

I live in Berkeley Spring and i ride this road all the time. Its a nice smooth flowing ride to paw paw. It has a very nice mountain side view with a restaurant called the panorama.
its not a difficult ride and is a good starter road for others that haven't been riding long.

i like this route but add rt 51 to cumberland md. Then take rt40e to Hancock Md then take RT 522 S back to berkeley Springs. This makes a nice loop. If you want I68 E is not bad from cumberland to Hancock

No chest thumping here. This road has all of the excitement I need. No reviews have yet mentioned the Panorama at the Peak Restaurant, which is one of our primary reasons for riding this route. This should not be missed, but not for riders on a very tight budget. Definitely not fast food. Nice atmosphere and really good food. Overlook is across the street. (passed at 40 seconds into the video)

I really enjoy this little stretch of WV-9. I guess "straight" is relative. In my opinion, this is a nice, smooth road with easy, sweeping turns. It is generally well-maintained, like most roads I've ridden in West Virginia. If you're a speed demon that lives to ride on the edge, I guess the road would seem tame. But if you're like me and just like to go along at a good clip, check out scenery while you ride, you'll enjoy this one. I ALWAYS avoid Berkeley Springs, though. Yes, it's a cool town, but there's always a traffic jam and I have better things to do than sit sweltering in traffic. I'd rather ride right back to Paw Paw for a Cheesesteak sub at Anthony's Jr. across from the Liberty gas station.

Has some nice turns down near the river near the Paw Paw side of the route, and a few nice ones between Capon Bridge and Berkeley Springs...but the rest is straight as an arrow. Actually the best turns are farther east on 9 between Berkeley Springs and Hedgesville but cages tend to drive slower than molasses in January with few places to pass once you enter the turny section. Was just on it this morning....waste of time....scenery is nice this time of year however.
