Re: dangerous RR crossing
Sure hate to hear about the mishaps at the RR crossing. I feel VERY guilty because one rider asked me how to get to the New River Gorge and I explained the route while extolling the beauty of the overlooks near Hawks Nest and the fun switchbacks on old US 60. After we parted I suddenly realized that I should have warned him about the sharp angled RR crossing on the bottom east side of the Hawks Nest pass. Hope he wasn't one of the statistics. I've considered that stretch of 60 to be one of my favorite rides for years and take it for granted but newbies should beware of it's hazards.
