“Beautiful and unspoiled”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Rt. 150 from rt.219 to Rts 39/55 has several overlooks. Fall leaf colors are more varied and distinct. Not crowded.

“Highway in the Sky........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This highway is limited to auto traffic only.....so no trucks to deal with. A great place to go when it's hot as temps are often 10-20 degrees lower on top of the mountain. Many trails and places to stop at overlooks. The Black Mtn overlook has a short boardwalk trail to an overlook and a nice little picnic shelter. Very little other folks there so a great get away for a quite day. At Black Mtn you'll feel like you're at the top of the world.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This is the most beautiful and relaxing drive!! There was no traffic-we only passed 2 or 3 cars. We used it to drive to Route 19 from the Marlinton area. There are a number of overlooks and hiking trails. We didn't stop at any because it was raining when we drove it. But definitely plan to return and enjoy the overlooks and trails!!! There was also a nature center at the southern end of the drive that may be worth checking out.

“Beautiful....a must do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We loved the scenic highway. We brought a picnic lunch with us and ate it in the campground near the river. There are lots of overlooks that also have bathrooms. We also visited Cranberry glades which was interesting. The roads are well maintained.
