West Virginia Scenic Turnpike

28.9 miles: 0 hours, 26 minutes

The West Virginia Scenic Turnpike (I-77) showcases the forested ridges of the Appalachian Mountains, beginning near Ghent and ending at the entrance to the East River Mountain Tunnel at the Virginia state line.


I-77 rolls gently through the Appalachian Mountains in southern West Virginia, where the thickly forested hillsides offer a spectacular fall display. At the terminus of the byway, drive straight into a West Virginia mountain through the East River Mountain Tunnel and out into the Virginia countryside.
