It was cold, raining and cloudy when we drove up on the highway so we did not get to experience the scenic views. We did stop at Honeycomb Rocks, which I highly recommend. It is a short trail to see the rocks.

If you ride motorcycles then this is a great place to get in some wind therapy. We were staying at The Inn at Mountain Quest and this was one of our rides while there. Beautiful views and winding roads. Ready to go ride there again.

Not our first visit but still lovely! Very foggy which reduced most of the views but it is a well maintained road and the scenery we could see was beautiful. The Williams River Valley overlook did not disappoint and neither did the Williams River Road...More

Per it's name, the HSH rises above the Greenbrier Valley. You can see 'forever' on a clear day, into Virginia. Much is over 4000 feet.

My wife and I travelled the Rt. 150 portion of this highway as we explored West Virginia recently. Beautiful scenery and mountain views! If this is a sample of the sites in West Virginia, we can't wait to explore more!

The Highland Scenic Highway is a must in Pocahontas county. The scenery is beautiful and changes throughout the entire drive. There are plenty of overlooks to pull over and have a picnic. Fall is one of the best times to visit, as the leaves hit...More

Clean highway area. Beautiful pictures you can take. God sure knows how to use a paint brush. The sky and mountians reach to touch each other.
