Mountain Music Trail

The Mountain Music Trail takes visitors on an exploration of the roots of the state’s strong music tradition, influenced by West Virginia’s Scottish and Irish ancestors and the Allegheny Mountains. The regional trail goes through five counties (Monroe, Greenbrier, Pocahontas, Randolph and Tucker) via U.S. Route 219, and there are festivals and workshops throughout the year. Visit MountainMusicTrail.com for a calendar of events, venues, musicians, and more.
