Hhmmn ... gotta say, I've never heard of it. I'll have to ride down there and check it out. It's not too terribly far. Good for an over-nighter. Thanks for posting. :)

I found info from a Mini Cooper site.

I have mapped out a trip for a couple of friends this summer.

I rode that on the GS during the MOA rally in Johnson City. There were some really great rides in that area. I need to go back...

That's part of my preferred route when heading from NC to Charleston, WV for my wifes annual family reunion in July. I didn't know there was anyone trying to commercialize it or that it was anything special. From the moment I leave my driveway all the way to Danville, WV, following 2 lane roads only, heading north, the whole 8 hour ride is a special treat.

It is a fantastic ride, but so is just about every route that heads north across the southern finger of VA and crosses both mountain ridges. Great twists up and down with great vistas from the ridges.

Continuing on 16 north is cool. War is interesting as is Coalwood, home of the "Rocket Boys" (October Sky). Enjoy the ride if you go.

We've ridden many great roads in and around that area but have not tried this one. Thanks for the tip.
