A great ride any time of year.
This road passes through farmland.
The road is in good shape with lots of sweeping curves and a few sharp ones just for fun.
You can even take a side trip at the intersection of route 623 through God's Thumb print (Burks Garden).
The section that follows wolf creek is a nice cool ride on a hot day.
Take some bottled water with you cause you won't see a store for a while.
Places to eat can be found at either end, but not the middle.
- Rider from Dugspur, VA (4/19/13)
Watch your speed, because this road (especially below Rocky Gap) invites fast speeds through the sweepers.
Combine with 42 for a great loop.
- Trip Rodgers (9/3/10)
A beautiful ride, especially at each end.
Near Tazewell in the south, take a side trip on VA 623 to the gorgeous high valley of Burke's Garden.
Up north, the Giles County section is a sweeper-to-twisty riverside run through forest canopy.
Light traffic throughout, with services at both ends and smack in the middle at Rocky Gap.
It's not the thrill-a-minute of any of the nearby cross-mountain roads (notably VA 16!), but a relaxing joy in its own way.
- Biker from Durham, NC (6/7/09)
Great ride for all.
Long straights, smooth straights, tight twisties and some great sweeping turns.
Watch out for gravel in your right turns.
You'll love the scenery also, as this road winds between two mountain ranges with a creek that runs throughout.
