Appalachian Backroads
Heart of Appalachia T A

The Commonwealths of Kentucky & Virginia share a rugged mountainous border of jagged peaks rising over 4135 feet into the horizon. Pine and Black Mountains create this phenomenal land mass through the Heart of Appalachia region enticing you to experience the curvy back roads that form these unique travel routes. Traverse through valley and peak; forest land, rolling farms, through distinct towns and lots of curves. Many of the trails intertwine with rivers and streams that our early pioneer settlers followed hundreds of years ago.

Museums, history, musicians, artisans and mountain folklore dwell in these peaks and valleys and continue the traditions that made this region the focus of many novels, documentaries and movies. The touring and travel is well suited (and chosen for) to motorcyclists, as well as sight-seeing vehicle visitors and avid experienced bicycling enthusiasts... check out Benge's Revenge (it's not for sissies)!
