Take This Road To Nowhere In West Virginia To Get Away From It All

West Virginia Route 150 is known as the Parkway portion of of the Highland Scenic Highway in Pocahontas County. It can be accessed on the north end from routes 219 and 55, and on the south end from routes 55 and 39. There are no businesses or gas stations along this road, and very few homes or cars. It’s not open to commercial traffic, and has a speed limit of 45 mph, although many travelers say they like to go slower to take it all in. It has an elevation of 4,545 feet at its highest point, providing a great view of everything below.

There are several scenic overlooks along the route, as well as hiking trails, campsites, and picnic areas. There’s no snow removal in the winter, so you probably won’t want to drive if the weather is bad, but some people like to go snowmobiling and cross-country skiing during the winter months.
