This 75-mile loop drive through the mountains of southwest Virginia follows the old highway up, down, and around the mountains to West Virginia. From there, you reverse direction and return on a modern interstate, tunneling through the mountains you climbed over earlier. Most of the drive is through the Jefferson National Forest and incorporates the Big Walker Scenic Byway. Special attractions include: Jefferson National Forest, the Big Walker Scenic Byway and lookout, scenic mountain views, small country towns, and a restored Indian village. The contrast between the winding, hilly old roads and the modern interstate with tunnels adds to the interest. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
