A 57-mile drive through rustic woods, hills, farms, and small towns, seemingly untouched by the last seventy-five years, but with a few special attractions showing some of the many changes during the past 2,000 years. This eTrail is a time machine that transports you back to the rural world of seventy-five years ago. Special Attractions: Unspoiled farmlands and woods, the ancient Grave Creek Mound Historic Site, the modern Prabhupada’s Palace of Gold, and the century-old Mannington Round Barn. 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.
