Hey folks: I have spent countless hours in this state Mnt. biking, kayaking, climbing, backpacking but never bike touring. I hope to incorporate a few rail trails(Blackwater canyon, West Fork trail), bike the shavers fork and possibly UP to Dolly Sods. The areas I need a little feedback:
The road connecting Cass to Seneca rocks. It is called 28, 33 and something else? This runs through Germany Valley. I know in some places traffic can be fast but lightly traveled. Is this true for the entire road? Good enough to tour?
Also the roads that are on each side of the Shavers Fork south of 219 just below Parsons. Both sides bikeable? What is road surface? Will mnt bike be needed.
This weekend I 'll post the final map for the entire trip. Looks like a 200 mile ride. Trying to keep the climbing to a respectable low level....but it is West Virginia
