For the record- I referred to no such road!!! I was talking about the attraction of the indian fish curing site and campground- known for centuries to tribes throughout the land as THE place to ride to with friends, at a high rate of speed- through the forrest and along the mighty South Potomac~ (They too were freaked at the installation of guard rails!) Highly prized by the Maripito tribe, IIRC~

>>If you want it to be a loop, start at Seneca, run south on 33 to Spruce Knob. Take a right and go up the mountain to the top. (11? miles of dirt/gravel), come off the backside thru Sinks of Gandy, Laurel Fork, then north on dirt to Wymer(about 20 miles of gravel). Left on 33 to Alpena. At Alpena, north thru Sully (it is 90% paved, not gravel like the map says). At Rt 72 you can go right or left, it is great in any direction. But go right, to Rt 32, then turn north. About a mile, then take the gravel road east thru Dolly Sods to Rt 28. North to Cabins, across the bridge, then south on I have no idea what, but small and twisty all the way to Rt220. Then 220 south to Franlkin, and then Rt 33 back to Seneca.<<

Great suggestion. Thanks for your input.

Also, Harveymushman - Great Pic - Gotta go there!!!

Please post when you plan on your trip. Some of us deviants might like to come along and harass you. Those roads are worth doing time and time again.

BTW, don't forget to plan a little down time for doing things off the bikes too. You can actually hike up to the Smoke Hole Caves, or you can also hike to the top of Seneca Rocks. At the top, ignore the "Don't go beyond this point" signs and keep going up. The ridge narrows until it is a knife-edge about 3 ft across, with drops of several hundred feet on either side. It is way cool. Don't worry though, I've taken my kids up there and had a picnic on top where it is about 15 ft wide. Here is the website
http://www.seneca-rocks.com/supplies.html

Here's a picture when I climbed out a little farther last year. The view from there is spectacular.



Walking the edge

Hey Jeff, I cannot mention the name of the road to which you refer that goes from 28 to 220 near Cabins........I am sworn to secrecy.





Man that road was silly fun. I think I almost remember how to get there!

>>Umm, your disqualified..Your not supposed to post where it is dumbass<<

I always get in trouble when I try to show off. Whip it out for the girl next door - her daddy's looking out the window. Do a burnout in my momma's car - straight to jail. Do a little roosting in the start area of an off-road race - disqualified. Pop a wheelie in the street in front of my house - the neighbors call the police. I thought West Virginia would be different. I thought everybody up there was family.

Jeff,

I am not going to be the rally boss for this ride. I don't know if it will be open to other groups. However, I will post a note here when I head for WV to scout the route. Ya'll are great help and I'd love to have some company on the ride.
