It is Rt. 72 in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia. I would post up a screen shot of it, but I am not as tech savvy as some of you. It is mad twisty on the map---looks like a ton of fun and maybe worth checking out. It's south Rt. 93 in WVA and north of 33. Any info on it would be great.

I don't know about 72, but I've ridden Rt219 which sort of parallels it to the east from Parsons to Rt50. 219 is a good ride.

The way there would be take 33 west and before you hit 219, take a right to go north on 32 and 72 would be a few miles down that road. Anyways...I am bringing my bike back home next weekend and I will probably be hitting up some roads that way if there is no other good rides (probably sunday) so I will certainly check it out and report back.

+1 for rt 219. I did a big seneca rocks loop with a few ppl before I went to school and the roads there are crazy. I surely am glad to be coming back!

i drove this road you are talking about. It's paved but shitty pavement. It's very narrow and unlined. They did do some patching on the road where they put down tar then put small gravel on top of it so there was loose gravel around.
It's a great road, great curves but not a fast road. Great scenery.

I will probably check it out on my own then. The losers I often ride with back home only wanna go fast and stuff...I'm more into the surroundings, great scenery, and weird things I see along the ride. I probably have the wrong bike for all that but whatever. Again, thanks for the info.
