Written DirectionsI66 to exit 27. Head South. Take 1st right on Crest Hill Road. In 16 miles, Crest Hill Road ends in Flint Hill. Turn Left onto Zachary Taylor Highway. Turn Right onto Fodderstack Road. Turns into Main Street in Washington, VA. Road ends, Turn Right onto 211 West. Take 211 through Sperryville. Ride the twisties on 211 up and down the mountain, passing the entrance to Shenandoah National Park at the peak. Continue on to the location of your choosing, or u-turn and do it in reverse!
SceneryThis route gets you to the exciting Shenandoah Mountain twisties, but off the beaten path. On Crest Hill Road, there are rolling grassy hills and farms. And yet in some spots, there is growth so close to the road that you are driving through a canopy of trees reaching over top of you. There are a few one-lane bridges, so keep your eyes peeled. When Crest Hill Road ends in Flint Hill, you can grab a bite to eat at The Griffin Tavern, and continue to Washington VA on Fodderstack Road. Fodderstack has more beautiful views of rolling hills and farm land. This road ends in Washington, VA, a beautiful little town. Finally, you are brought to 211 which you can take through the Shenandoah mountain climb. A wonderful, well-paved road that should get any 2-wheeler their chance to lean over.
Drive EnjoymentCrest Hill Road and Fodderstack Road have some rough spots, but no pot holes. Any bike should be able to handle them with no problem. 211 is a well-maintained highway and the mountain climb up to and down from the entrance to Shenandoah National Park is wonderful. Keep your eye out for gravel on the twisties, which are occasionally stirred up by vehicles that can't seem to keep their wheels on the road.
Tourism OpportunitiesYou will see nothing until Flint Hill (where Crest Hill Road ends). There you'll find the Griffin Tavern, which is a great little restaurant. In Washington, there is a very expensive Inn where you can eat. Once on 211, you'll find a great burger joint on the left (heading West) when you enter Sperryville. Great burgers, fries, and milk.shakes.

I used this route as a leg for a bigger route. It wasnt bad at all, RT211 is a 4 lane rd so you can take your time w/o someone riding your ass. its a little congested in warrenton but traffic fades quickly as you head west. The little food stand in sperryville was decent and had friendly staff. the twisties on the mountain weren't difficult to negotiate. not too many pull offs to site see. I would use this route again to connect to skyline dr.
