Written Directions



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.

Drive Enjoyment

Rt 42 is very twisty, switch-backs galore, narrow in places with lots of farmland.

Tourism Opportunities

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.
