Written Directions

Begin in Peterstown, WV or Rich Creek, VA, head north on Rt 219 toward Union, WV. In Union turn right on Rt 3 toward Gap Mills/Sweet Springs, WV. Pass through Sweet Springs to the WV/VA state line where the route number changes to Rt 311. Continue into Virginia...

Scenery

You'l be passing through rolling hills, farms, mountians, and quiet peaceful countryside (This route continues into Virginia - Southwestern Virginia - Sweet Chalybeate to Monterey).

Drive Enjoyment

Very few twisties, some nice sweepers, road is well maintained, nice rolling hills. One of my favorite rides anywhere.

Tourism Opportunities

Small towns and a little shopping along the way. Union is a very nice little town with restaurants yet nothing fancy but good food in a number of locations.

One of my favorite rides. The entire area is filled with one great ride after another. This is sort of a taste of what each area of southeastern W. Va. has to offer. Beutiful views along the Greenbrier River valley, roads are in surprisingly good shape. Traffic can occur, but I haven't had too many times when someone was behind me. Droop Mountain Battlefield is a great stop. Rt. 150 (Northbound on 219, take left on Rt. 39 to Rt. 150) is a great addition to this ride. Ride 150 to the stop sign, turning left will take you back to Rt. 219.

Certainly a cruiser road for those rolling hills to the east of you as going up 219 North. 219 North South of Lewisburg isn't anything to write home about twisty wise, but as mentioned the scenery is good and when you're turn off onto 3 and get into the forest it gets even better. So scenery and leaf-peeping or what you're after here.
