Looking for Fall VA, MD, PA, WVa Trip

Anyone have ideas on good routes thru VA, MD, PA, and WVa? Me and 3 friends always take a mid-OCT trip and are looking for something new.

Ride Safe!

Depending where you're coming from and the type of riding you're looking for I can suggest a few routes in PA and WV. In WV, look at a map and see where Elkins is. Any of the roads in the interior of WV will give you very scenic and very technical riding. Route 39, 43, 606, any of the roads are compairable to the famed DRAGON. These are just a few. In and around the town of BATH there are some great rodes to ride aggresively. In PA, depending if you are in the western part. There is not the technical rodes that WV has but there are some very scenic areas in Tionesta area, Marianville, RT 6 across the entire east/west corridor. In the far eastern area you have the rodes around WELLSBORO. Great little town, Good food and nice rodes. Cental PA. around the area of Dubois, Bennezette, St. Mary's heading east from there you could look at Williams Port and Lewisburg. All great little towns with a lot of charactor and history. Some good riding in the State College area.

hope this helps

I like the Shenandoah area of WV/VA and it's quite scenic this time of year. US 50 between Clarksburg and Romney WV is a blast.

Just got back from a wonderful ride along the North side of Tennesee on the way to Front Royal Virginia where Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park starts. Speed limit is 35 all the way through the park and no radar detectors allowed in VA so it was a slow 110 miles but the scenery is wonderful. Everytime we pushed 35 up to 45 a park ranger would come around the corner. On the way saw a State Park called Hungry Mother State Park and going in to the park is Highway 16.......check it out, it is a great motorcycle road that I have not heard anyone talk about.
