BEST RIDES IN WEST VIRGINIA

West Virginia County Roads Maps in PDF

Mouse over the counties. Many counties have more than one map.

Highland Scenic Highway :
The Highland Scenic Highway is a beautiful corridor through the National Forest.
This National Forest Scenic Byway extends 43 miles from Richwood to US Route 219,
seven miles north of Marlinton.

This road cannot be missed. All mountain-top with views that go on for ever. Map:

US 219 :
Robert C. Byrd Scenic Highway: US 219 traverses this State from the border with
Maryland to the opposite South West corner.
Curves are sweeping and showcase mountain vistas in the distance.
While traveling on US 219, you'll experience the Cheat Mountain area, Lewisburg and Elkins.
If you go as far south as Hillsboro, you'll be rewarded with some twisty roads nearing perfection.

US 50 - George Washington Highway:
53 miles starting at Grafton, WV
head east on US 50 through the most western tip of Maryland and
continue on to the small West Virginia town of Mount Storm where
highway 50 and WV Route 42 intersect.

Beckley, West Virginia Coal Mine Area
183 mile loop.
This ride starts just south-west of Beckley, WV and ends in nearby Sandy Springs.
The route has a lot of nice curves that will require your attention,
as-well-as plenty of gently curving scenic sections and a few good
straight-aways that let you relax and allow you to fully enjoy the road. Directions
Hwy 15 between Sutton & Valley Head Tight turns give way to long
sweepers as the road skirts Monongahela National Forest,
with amazing scenery the entire way.
Hwy 16 between the I-79 interchange and Belva.
This is a fun twisty road that follows along the Elk River.

RT 20 between Diana & Buckhannon
Jump off of 15 at Diana to travel up and down the mountains on Rt 20.
Lots of twists & turns with switchbacks and elevation changes.
Just before French Creek stop for a break at the West Virginia Wildlife Center.
The link above will take you to Thunder Roads Magazine
where they did a write up of this fun road.


Hwy 66 East of Snowshoe Mt.
Challenging twists and curves and beautiful scenery.

I was thinking to go check out the Cass Scenic Railroad town. Anyone interested in joining? I remember last year I had a really great time just riding around, but this year I wouldn't mind actually having some interesting destinations planned.

Has anyone been to Cass before? Im open to other suggestions as well.

For anyone thats interested, I'm planning on going to Cass Saturday morning. There will be at least three people in my group, and anyone is welcome to tag along.

But be prepaired to get lost a bunch! I have no sense of direction (if someone else wants to lead, by all means go ahead).

That train ride is pretty good. It goes up to an old logging operation at the top of the mountain; there's some equipment still up there and a visitor's center.

The Shay locomotives were good for climbing steep grades; IIRC there are a couple switchbacks on the way up the hill. Deer in the woods waiting for handouts, etc...

The smoke from the train should mask (most) of the odor.

I'm out. This is the weekend before I leave for the 3 week Continental Divide Ride. I should stay home and spend time with the wife.

Maybe she's lurking and I just got points
