Rt 42 - Virginia Mountains + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Take I-81 to Bristol VA. Go North on I-81 to Rt. 92 North. 92 turns into 42. Go North for 2 days. Have fun!
This is the longest state road in VA. It runs from just north of Bristol VA (Glade Spring Rt 91) to Woodstock VA. 42 is west of I-81 and you will visit a lifestyle of Virginia that is lost in time. The ride is very mountainous, full of very small towns such as Saltville VA.
Rt 42 is very twisty, switch-backs galore, narrow in places with lots of farmland.
You will need to swing towards I-81 to find great steakhouses, Hampton Inns etc. Wear warm clothing. The altitudes will fool you, even in the summer.
