Written Directions

Just north of Hillsboro, WV, start this ride at the intersection of US 219 and Rt 39 by heading west on Route 39 all the way till you find Rt 150. Take a right on to Rt 150 (heading north) and follow Rt 150 all the way around until it turns east and runs into this routes end point of the intersection Rt 150 and US 219 about 7 miles north of Marlinton, WV.

Scenery

A beautiful ride through the highlands of W.Va. Much of it you look down on trees that look like green fluffy cotton balls. In the fall, it looks like the hills are on fire. A little bit of The Blue ridge Parkway in W.Va.

Road Quality

Very smooth road. Much of the roads in the surrounding area are in surprisingly good shape. Good curves, and little traffic. Speed is 45, but it is usually safe to cut it loose here and there.

Roadside Amenities

Marlinton has food, gas and hotels. Marlinton is to the right at the north exit of Rt.150. To the left at the exit of Rt.39 to the south. Rt.150 southern exit, turn right to go to Richwood for gas and food. Other than that, there is no stores/gas on 150. Some campsites here and there, though...

Additional Info

A little known route. It is a very relaxed ride. Rest areas are dotted along the "highway". Dress warm in the fall, it has been known to snow in Oct. in the mountains...

No tight turns, nice smooth road, high on the mountains of Pocahontas County. This is a beautiful section of road to just take in the overlooks.

A well-maintained, lovely road high above the neighboring valleys. Not on the way to anywhere, so there's little or no traffic anytime, unless there's a bike rally at Snowshoe. Perfect for a Fall ride - the colors from the overlooks are worth the trip! Like the Cherohala - long graceful curves with great views, few challenges.
