Veteran's Memorial Scenic Highway

27.7 miles: 0 hours, 25 minutes

This Interstate may have higher speeds than some other scenic byways, but you’ll have plenty of views to see on every side as you motor through Wild and Wonderful West Virginia’s highlands along Veteran’s Memorial Highway. Part of the journey passes through the popular Coopers Rock State Forest and goes over the gleaming waters of Cheat Lake.

The four-lane, divided I-68 parallels West Virginia's northern border highway follows the horizontal border, and plays a roller coaster game with the mountains of the wilderness that make this state so popular with outdoor enthusiasts. A stop for a hike or lunch in the state park can make for a welcome diversion. You might see mountain bikers or fishermen while you’re there.
