Covington to Pearisville + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Start in Covington, VA and head south out of town on VA route 18. Eventually it turns into county route 17/Waiteville road in West Virginia. Stay on that and you will eventually cross the state line again back into Virginia, which will be Big Stoney Creek road. Take that until US 460.
Just south of Covington, the route is in some hills but not big elevation changes. As you head towards the state line you end up in a valley, sometime following a creek. You are mostly going through farm land.
This road is not a super tight/twisty road but has good turns on it and great scenery. The road quality was excellent, for the most part clean pavement. The southern end was pretty fresh pavement through national forest. No lines on the road, but good quality pavement. The northern end was typical state route; double yellow lines/clean pavement, etc. Right before you get to US460 there is a gravel plant and the road is dirty but not for very long.
The road goes through national forest and farm land. While there are plenty of amenities on each end of the road, there's nothing but farms and woods in between.
The road was EMPTY - no traffic when I rode it on a Sunday, late morning. It seemed pretty "out of the way" so i don't see it having a lot of traffic.
