US 33 in West Virginia

Need to travel from Harrisonburg, VA to Pittsburgh, Pa at the end of October. Thinking about using US 33 from Harrisonburg to Clarksburg, WV. From what I've researched, the road is either 2 or 4 lanes over the length. That's OK with me. The question concerns the hills there. Is it fairly flat with steep climbs or just a complete rolli-coaster? Born and raised in SW PA so I understand the possible terrain for this road.

33 has many switchbacks and is very hilly. You'd have popeye arms after driving that route.

I would go north on I-81 to 522 at Winchester. Take 522 north to I-70. Then I-70 to the PA turnpike at Breezewood. This route is actually about 9 miles shorter than taking 33 to I-79. The PA toll would be partially offset by better gas mileage.

Thanks for response Tom. I got the Popeye arms from driving into and out of Yellowstone. The DW would leave me if I gave her a Dick Chenney heart by another screwy road. I've done the 522 to I-70 hop before; we like alternative routes so we try not to travel the same route unless it is the best route. Thanks again.

We stayed at the Weston Walmart where 33 meets I-79 on Oct. 28, 2008 on our way south for the winter. In the morning all the cars coming from the East on 33 were covered with 8" of snow. We had no snow in Weston. The Walmart was not open 24 hours and was nice and quiet.

Post after you get back from your trip.
