High alert mode here, folks. This section of 72 is 1.5 lanes in many spots. Gravel is a thing, cars coming the other way, though rarely, is a thing and the edge of the road is a thing. That said, all of these 'things' also make the road so fun.

HOWEVER, if you don't think you can handle all of those twisties then draw up this road on Google Maps and look up WV County Route 26 'River Rd' that parallels this road. It also is 1.5 lanes, but it's practically straight as an arrow and will let you bypass the insanity for 85% of the road.

I recommend you try both methods to see which you like best. (The video is all 72, no River Rd.)
