The Highland Scenic Highway Is A Back Road You Didn’t Know Existed But Is Perfect For A Scenic Drive In West Virginia

Winding through the rugged highland regions of mid-eastern West Virginia between Summersville and Marlinton, the remote, lightly trafficked Highland Scenic Highway is a stunning backroad in the Monongahela National Forest. It’s closed to vehicle traffic for much of the winter due to snow but makes for a beautiful drive during each of the other three seasons of the year.

So fill up the tank of your car with gas, pack a picnic lunch, and head out to enjoy the many beautiful views along the Highland Scenic Highway. It will be a day well spent! For a map and more info, check the U.S. Department of Transportation information here.
