Hwy 16... simply start on HWY 16 going North around Alexander or Wilks Counties. My last ride was to Coalwood WV. Hwy 16 gets so curvy that it makes deals gap look like a drag strip:-). Really it is a Great ride.... one of the best of the best. To really enjoy.. make it an over night, and go all the way to the end of Hwy 16. I think it goes into Ohio.
PS.... there is only # (three) ways into or out of Coalwood WV.... you must take either hwy 16, hwy 16... or... hwy 16...... Coal wood in the home of the "Rocket Boys".. there is a Space shuttle mockup there installed by Nasa. If you don't know about the "Rocket Boys" just google them.
