This is a 60-mile, pristine drive through woods and mountains with few towns or distractions along the way, giving a taste of rural Virginia as much of the state must have looked years ago. The drive ends at Breaks Interstate Park on the rim of the 1,600-foot deep canyon of the Russell Fork River, the deepest canyon in the eastern United States. Don’t take this drive if you want to visit museums, Civil War or other historical areas, large cities, or tourist attractions. The drive follows a two-lane paved, but sometimes rough, road uphill and down, mostly through the unspoiled beauty of Jefferson National Forest. But most of the drive passes by woods, streams, and mountains, giving a view of rural Virginia as much of it looked 50 or 75 years ago.
