Mount Misery Road

Here’s another road that gets more attention than it deserves due to its name. While I will agree Mt. Misery is a cool road to drive down at night, there really isn’t anything noteworthy on it. It has a Methodist retreat center on its Rt. 70 end, as well as a few houses along the rest of it. No Trespassing signs are frequent, which may add to the appeal of the road. The road (if you’re coming from 70) starts out paved and somewhere in the middle becomes dirt, with large potholes. Many side roads split off from it, so if you’re feeling adventurous (if you didn’t you wouldn’t be checking this site), taking these alternate ways could lead to other interesting spots in the pines. Some will just get you plain lost.
