US Route 250 Virginia and West Virginia

Curious about any comments concerning this route through the George Wasington and Monongahela National Forests. I don't mind two lane travelling, But do mind two lanes at 20 MPH. Thanks.

I've been a few miles on the Virginia side. Rather mountainous as best I remember. Any of W.Va and western Va. is going to be a slow travel in the mountains. You're probably right in the 2 lane - 20mph thinking. It's very pretty if you like mountains.

About 15 years ago, I used US-250 from Huttonsville, WV to Staunton, VA towing just a pop-up. You'd wind your way up one side of the mountain and then wind your way back down. At the bottom, there would be a small town with one traffic light. This pattern repeated itself a number of times. After about the second cycle, the "deja vu" feeling made me think that I was on a never ending trip. It's even worse if you happen to come upon a loaded coal truck or other slow moving vehicle along the way.

I don't know whether anything's improved on this stretch of road in the 15 years since I used it, but by looking at the maps, I'd be inclined to say it hasn't.

All I can say is if you elect to use this road, be very careful and alert.

I've driven it several times. ABSOLUTELY gorgeous country so the slower speeds are a blessing to be able to take it all in. It's mountains and crooked and you won't set any speed records but well worth it for the scenery.

Last Saturday we went from Harrisonburg, Va to the Cass Railroad in Cass, Wv taking rt 33 to rt 28. On Sunday we came back over the mountains on rt 250. We are now driving a 23 foot class B+. On Sunday my wife said that she was glade that I was not driving our old 35' Winnie. Rt 33 was by far the better choice even thou it has some steep hills.
Both routes are very pretty. Go slow and enjoy. DO NOT ride your brakes, instead punch them to slow down then let off them. Otherwise you will smoke them.
Have a nice trip.

Thanks for all the input. Will take it all under consideration and then do what my wife tells me to. Thanks again.
