Rider Gap - Pocahontas County

Located on Rt 39 about 100 feet west of the Virginia state line. Gravel road over old trail runs north and south from the highway.

This marker was missing when I went by here in March of this year.

Historical Marker located on Rt 39 just inside the WV/VA state line - about 20 - 25 miles east of Marlinton WV.





Same Marker - Side #2




View eastbound on Rt 39 - that's Virginia just over the hilltop. The two gravel roads for Rider Gap (AKA Ryder Gap) go to the left (north) and right (south).
