One of the oldest and most scenic routes in the United States, the Midland Trail, or old U.S. Route 60, offers a delightful 119-mile journey across south central West Virginia. Outdoor enthusiasts head for the Greenbrier River Trail, which offers over 80 miles of well-marked hiking and biking paths. History buffs can stop off at any number of historic sites including the Old Stone House, a reminder of what life was like for the industrial pioneers.

We ride our Harley on this road quite often and there is some beautiful scenery. We always pass a lot of other bikes. Some nice little towns along the way, with little diners serving home cooked food.

Driving along the Midland Trail is a nice break for those used to traveling the interstate. The scenery is pleasant all year round.

The best part of this drive is from Charleston eastward. The key here is to take your time and enjoy it all. There is so much to see. It starts out as a flat curvy road and turns into a mountainous and VERY curvy road...More

A must see is the Mystery Hole. Great place for motorcycle riding and a slow tour back in time. Take the time to hike and fish the many holes.

Definitely not the interstate. If you don't like curvy roads, stay off. But if you are on a motorcycle or enjoy a driving challenge, what a great place to drive :) I learned to drive on these roads and I love them

I remember when this road was the ONLY way over the mountains, so this was a trip into the past for me (minus the road jams of 18 wheelers) It is a beautiful, scenic drive that takes a little time, but is worth the effort

this is a slow pace fun drive. The family and I like to take long drives and not get in a hurry, you never know what you will see.

I drove the Midland trail from Charleston to KY-BEWARE in one part of Charleston there are pot holes so deep they could swallow a bus!
