Scenery You'll See
This road is a scenic roller-coaster ride with huge inclines and declines on hwy 66 east of Snowshoe Mtn. Snowshoe itself is a 6 mile climb to the top and twists and curves that will challenge even the best riders. I coasted down mostly. Beautiful log homes that implanted themselves in the side of the mountain and beautiful scenery. Nice streams usually follow the roads around Snowshoe. This road will challenge you, I promise!
Towns/Cities You'll Pass By/Through
Nothing but beautiful scenery on this drive. East of Snowshoe on Highway 66 is all forest and mountain.
Attractions & Points-of-Interests Along the Way
Go see Senaca Rocks and make sure you bring your camera! There is a cool bar/restaurant as well. Snowshoe has a gas station at the bottom of the mountain, can't miss it because there will be a ton of motorcycles and sports cars stopping there. Marlinton is about 15 miles south of Snowshoe, this is a neat little town with ample refueling, shopping, and eating places. There is also a restaurant about 6 miles north of Snowshoe off hwy 219 (look for the bear). If you go to Snowshoe Freedomfest the 3rd weekend of July, join the guided tours. There are tons of bikes at this. Also, go on the ride and hike ride, it's well worth it.
