You want to aim for Oak Hill, West Viginia. Oak Hill is on US Route 19 about 15 miles north of Beckley. So map out a route to there, or use a suggestion below – it'll be hard to pick unfun roads for getting there.

From US 19 (either northbound or southbound) take the Main Street exit eastbound, which is also WV Route 16 North. Directly across from the BP gas station, turn left onto Minden Road (County Route 17), which will loop around and cross under Main Street. Just stay on the main road, following the signs to ACE, which is just under three miles from WV 16 at the end of Minden Rd.

GPS geeks might want to eschew maps and just head for 3758'04" N 8105'28" W (that's UTM 17 N 492008m E / 4202024m N), but be careful you don't end up on the other side of the New River Gorge; it's a long way to go around.


This space is under development. My intention is to share a few different interesting routes for getting to Oak Hill. Got a plan to share? Send it to me!
