West Virginia starts in Ripley, WV and ends in Marlington, WV. The state is 166.88 miles in length and travels through the back country with county roads both paved and non-paved. The countryside is beautiful and peaceful.
At the very start, at mile marker 7.24 (so marked on the map) the rider has a choice to ride a technical section of mud holes and deep ruts (trust me, this short section will get your attention) or stay on the main route, which beautiful rolling hills.
Then again at mile marker 49.93 (marked on the map) the rider has another choice to ride a section that is very rocky (no county maintenance). But this section might be closed so be aware of a back track to the main TAT which, once again, is beautiful rolling hills.
Gas stops are close and not a problem. A motel is available at Sutton, VA (mile marker 89.77) if needed.
The TAT goes through the Monongahela National Forest and follows the Williams River for 40 miles or so and is very nice.
Then it’s out to Marlington, WV with motel, food, and gas.
West Virginia is short but is a beautiful ride.
