Written Directions

I always took this road off of I-77 South. There's an exit for it 174, take it going east if coming off of I-77, of course.

Scenery

This route is your basic tree, hills, creeks, farms and country houses route that permeate West Virgina. Not boring, but not some grand joy, either.

Drive Enjoyment

Road quality is fair, some bumpy spots, some nice clean pavement. No real complaints.

Tourism Opportunities

You pass through a good few towns, but they're all pretty small. I don't remember anything particularly standing out.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This road is what I call a good cruising road for all types of motorcycle. Not crazy twisty, but certain twisty in some spots, mainly a heavy dose of long and short sweepers with curves on the softer side. The pavement is in good to excellent condition as of Sept, 2013 and a solid ride is to be had from Parkersburg all the way to its terminus in Linn, WV.

Absolutely love this road and use it often in making different loops or when heading into the mountains of WV.

Just a really nice cruising road that's in good condition. This is the every man's motorcycle riding road. Twisty enough that at a fair bit of speed it should keep the sport bike crowd mildly entertained, while at the same time the bagger crowd will like the soft sweepers with a dash of twisties. Just a good solid jack of all trades road. (As a sport bike rider it's not something that I'll be taking all of the time, but unlike some roads I won't be crying while riding this one. Looking at you WV Route 92 north of Belington. Blech.)
