Written Directions

Start at the intersection of WV 39 at Huntersville and stay on WV 28 up/north to Moorefield.

Scenery

WV 28 offers a variety of scenery along its path. Headed North from WV39 at Huntersville, the road weaves its way through the Monongahela forest. When you aren't riding through a thick canopy of lush forest, you are cruising through a beautiful valley with mountains on your right and your left. You will hug the banks of a white-water stream as you cruise through the Seneca Rocks area. From beginning to end - WV28 is a visual treat!

Road Quality: 5

WV 28 has a very nice "rhythm" to it - not many tight corners, just one slight curve after another as you ride along the valley floor. There are a few sections with significant elevation changes on the southern end, but you won't find any mountain carving switchbacks on this road - just an abundance of easy to moderate curves. The condition of the tarmac is very good throughout the whole route!



Roadside Amenities:: 4

For such a secluded road there are many things to see and to do. Headed North from Huntersville: At mile 18 - you can take a slight detour at WV66 and head to the Cass Scenic Railroad State Park.

The Cass railroad offers excursions on steam-driven locomotives that are filled with rich histories of the past, unparalleled views of a vast wilderness area, and close-up encounters with original steam-driven locomotives.

Just a few miles North of WV66 you will find the Green Bank National Radio Observatory.

Green Bank is home to the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope. Tours of the facility are provided - it looks like great destination for a field trip!

At mile 65 you can stop at the Seneca Rocks and go for a climb!

Further up the road - there are many places to stop and eat, fish, hike, or go canoeing on the river!

Hardly a road in W. Va. that I don't like, but 28 stands out. Not only is it close to unique stops (Radio Observatory, Cass Scenic Railroad), but other roads around it are well worth staying in the area for a few days.
Rt. 39 is a great companion road with this route.

We rode down 220/55/28. Very good ride. Cut on over on 55/28 thru Elkins and down to Valley Head. Took 15 W over to Sutton. WV15 had some longitudinal cut away repairs and washboard surfaces. Excellent scenery and worth the ride.

Came down 40 to 219 then 50 to 28. GREAT RIDE. Forget the Dragon. 28 has everyting you want plus no big trucks. Go into Marlinton and stop over at the Old Clark Inn. Clean,economical (cheap) and GREAT FOLKS. If you want 5 star accomodations and catered service look someplace else.If you want a good relaxing time without frills, DO IT !!!!!!!! I rode the Dragon last year, no big deal.
