U.S. 58 from Mouth of Wilson — home of the legendary Wayne Henderson — and the bicycling and float trip town of Damascus easily ranks in the top 10 of my favorite motorcycle riding roads in Southwestern Virginia.
It winds for 34 miles through farmland, forest and the Mt. Rogers recreation area, proving a good mix of twists, turns and challenges for the rider, accentuated by wonderful views of nature.
Leaves are just starting to turn in part of the Mt. Rogers preserve and should be in full colors later this month.
Take the ride. You’ll enjoy it.
