|::: Where We Are|
|Highland County is in the Allegheny Mountains on the western upland side of the famed Shenandoah Valley. Interstate highways 81 and 64 connect to US Routes 250 and 220 — both of which lead directly to the county seat of Monterey.|
|Our local VDOT does an excellent job of clearing ice and snow from our roads!
FROM THE NORTH: Travel south on I-81 to exits #225 (bypasses Staunton) or #222 (Staunton exit). Travel west on US 250 to McDowell (35 miles) and/or Monterey (45 miles). US 250 is an excellent road, rx however, it does wind across several mountains. Allow approximately 50 minutes driving time to McDowell and a little over 1 hour from the junction with I-81.

FROM THE SOUTH: Travel north on I-81 to exit #222 (Staunton exit) and follow the above directions or take exit #150 (north of Roanoke) and follow US 220 north into Monterey (125 miles). Allow approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes driving time from exit #150.
FROM THE WEST: Travel east on US 250 or east on I-64 to exit #181 and north on WV 42 to Frost to WV 84 to Monterey. Allow approximately 1 hour driving time from Elkins or 2 hours from White Sulphur Springs.
