This 88-mile (approximately 6.5-hour) round trip includes many interesting features such as a long tunnel built with an “S” curve far underneath Cheat Mountain, numerous long mountain vistas, and many opportunities to view exotic wildlife including bald eagle and black bear. Stops will be made at the inspirational “High Falls of the Cheat” as well as Cheat Bridge.
