I was looking for a route to drive from Washington DC to Cincinnati (I have taken route 50 before (also recommend) and was completely delighted with the beauty and "off the beaten track" aspect of this route. What struck me was the fact this route is steeped in history - from the time of the earliest westward expansion, frontier conflict and economic development this routes historical markers and towns will greatly inform you. There were a number of State Parks but not very much lodging so keep that in mind.

The Midland Trail is never appreciated or promoted for the wonderful beauty it holds. The mountains, rivers, creeks and multitude of beautiful waterfalls are beyond comparison. The scenery changes with every season yet never fails to be breath taking in its grandeur. It is a road that must be taken or you will have missed a wonderful array of God’s creation.

My spouse and I headed out of Charleston on a day trip to Lewisburg to see some of West Virginia's countryside while on a four-day visit. Following the blue and white Route 60 markers out of town, we noted that the scenery became more rural as the roadway took leave of the Kanawha River. We thought it very similar to motoring through the Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina. The Trail's two-laned, twisting and winding route over picturesque hills, through farmlands and small towns, passed by waterfalls, river gorges--and yes, some coal mines. It was pleasant up until the time the snow began in the higher mountains. Obviously, spring was slow to come to the state this April. The trees were not yet in bloom, and horizons were misty. As we climbed, the road became very steep and curvy to the point that we had to slow to 20 mph. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the three hours that it took to reach Lewisburg. It really was the journey and not the destination that was important. Because the snow became heavier in Lewisburg, we opted to drive back to Charleston via the Interstate. Despite the weather, it was a great drive

A must do vacation. We took a week too go on this drive. That way we could really enjoy the nature and see all the unique places. We love it so much we keep going back. Fall is the absolute best time to go. Its breath taking! Best pay is its not to expensive if you like camping. Which we do... even you're kids will like this because there's so much for them too do as well.

Great weekend road trip. recommend fall for change of leaves. many interesting stops and many reasonable accommodations. Suggest review calendar of events for WV, our last trip concluded in Lewisburg during their Taste of Our Town (TOOT) with food vendors including the Greenbrier Hotel Restaurant. Great food, live music and unique shops.
