Written Directions

The starting point is easy to find - just find exit 24 off of interstate 81 (which is north of Abingdon, VA at Meadowview, VA). At this exit you will be on route 80 (take 80 north) and be able to take that all the way through Honaker, VA and on to the end of the route at the Kentucky state line. Here you can visit "Breaks Interstate Park."

Scenery

You'll see incredible scenery that includes mountains, rivers, old buildings, historic landmarks and end up at beautiful Breaks Interstate Park inside of the Jefferson National Forest.

Drive Enjoyment

Endless twists, turns, hills some flat and straight for resting. The roads are old country roads that include both rough and smooth sections. In my opinion, better than the dragon.

Tourism Opportunities

There are rest areas in small towns but the real thing to see is Breaks Interstate Park as its the main tourist attraction in the area.

This road has tons of turns from I 81 all the way to 19. Very tight turns in places along with a somewhat narrow roadway. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners though. At least not on big touring rigs. It can be a bit un-nerving at times. Be watchful for cars coming at you, usualy they are traveling quite fast.

My wife and I took this trip yesterday - 2-up on a V-Strom. This road is a lot of fun. We ate as the Redbud and loved the food. Coming from Greensboro, NC, we took RT 58 west. It was a long haul, but a there are sections of twisties on 58 too. We'll be doing this trip again!

Great route lots of tight turns and beauiful scenery. The back side of the mountain is narrow so becareful. Breaks interstate park.was something to see. We are going back soon. There is a little barbaque reaturant in Honaker called Redbud on main that was very friendly with great food. A great day trip!
