Enjoyed a drive along this scenic highway. Although there were plenty of look-outs with fantastic views, it would have been much better with some fall color

Highway 219 can get you almost anywhere you want to go in this neck of the woods. It is a good, well-maintained road without blind curves or pot holes. Roads leading to Snowshoe, Marlinton, Watoga State Park, etc. branch off of 219, and it's beautiful...More

We enjoyed our drive through the mountains...I’m sure it would be glorious in the autumn! The Cranberry Glades welcome center is very nice.

The countryside and mountains are just beautiful. A very relaxing way to spend an afternoon. One beautiful view after another around every curve in the road.

It was cold, raining and cloudy when we drove up on the highway so we did not get to experience the scenic views. We did stop at Honeycomb Rocks, which I highly recommend. It is a short trail to see the rocks.
