The Allegheny Mountains Loop offers a wide variety of riding types from pavement to gravel, from gentle grades along river valleys to steep, muscle burning climbs and fast descents over ridges, and from busy U.S. highways to lightly trafficked county roads and rail trails where no cars are allowed. Besides the main route there are 4 options which give the cyclist choices in the mileage they choose to ride. The route begins and ends in Blacksburg, VA, and crosses back and forth between Virginia and West Virginia several times. Highlights along the route include the Humpback Covered Bridge, Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, and excursion train rides from the town of Durbin.

These maps feel like that are printed on some sort of vinyl. This makes them waterproof, although I have not tested this myself. The maps come with all sorts of information, including information about amenities at various locations that you will be traveling to during your ride, elevation gain chart per a segment, and a somewhat detailed topographical map.
