Barbour Co / Randolph Co Line - Rt 250/92

Located about 3 miles south of Junior, just north of the junction with Rt 33.

There are a lot of great roads in Randolph County, as it is really at the edge of the Allegheny Mountains. Anything west of Elkins is what I consider "foothills". Still lots of great roads, but not a lot of elevation change. Just east of Elkins are 4 mountains within Randolph County on Rt 33/55 alone - Shavers, Rich (lots of history there!), Middle, and Allegheny. All are between 2,000 - 3,500 foot elevation.
