Route 60 from Charleston to Lewisburg, WV is a FANTASTIC RIDE and Gauley Mountain is one of the best parts of it.
There is a new restaurant that caters to bikers, New Hawks Nest State Park called The Chimney Corner Cafe.
You can read a recent article about it at www.statejournal.com
Many other attractions in the area as well.
Everything from Whitewater Rafting to touring an actual Coal Mine.
You can do the ride in just a couple of hours, but plan on staying a couple of days to enjoy the whole area.
