Written DirectionsBuckhannon West Virginia is located in the north central part of the state. Coming from the east you would likely follow the new four-lane highway (US Route 33)from Elkins WV. If you want a REAL treat ride US route 33 all the way from Harrisonburg VA. If you are coming from the north you will likely come down Interstate 79 from Pittsburgh/Morgantown and then follow US Route 33 east from Weston WV appx 15 miles over to Buckhannon.
SceneryGreat consistent pavement...continual twisties the whole 55 miles. Folks it doesn't get much better than this anywhere in the eastern USA. Few rocks or gravel in the turns unless there has been a hard rain in within the previous day or so. Youll hardly ever see the law...but obey the speed limits in the small towns for good measure.
Road Quality: 5
Super nice road quality. Hills, mountains, valleys, twisties, sweepers, cruisers. Something for everyone.
Roadside Amenities:: 2
Who cares about the amenities...what do you want? Its central West-by- God for pete sakes...its the continual twisties that make this route a MUST do if you're passing thru the center of WV. Fuel up/Eat, etc. in Buckhannan then have at it for the next hour. Theres a Subway and a home town restaurant in Webster Springs - Snowshoe is only 40 miles or so beyond over on 219...lots there?
