Travel Winchester VA to Route 95 South to FL

From Winchester Va on 81 to 77 to Charlotte and on to 95 south. I believe there is a long pull on 77? Are there other long hills from from Winchester 81 to 95 South on this route?? Thanks in advance for any help; Frank

We use to take that route to Florida until we tried 64E in Staunton, made the trip so much more pleasant, very easy over to Richmond than directly south on 95, please look at this route and reconsider. Really nice route.

Thanks King Yankee. I looked at that route. Is there a long pull on the west side or am I thinking of another road? I remember a long down hill run on the east side of a road to Richmond however the down hill was beautiful. Frank

I don't remember a long run downhill on 64, a lot less traffic the last 3 times I used it. Even in-laws following me loved it better.

You can take Route 50 out of Winchester to Route 17 (mostly 4 lane) then down to I-95 just north of Fredericksburg, not a bad drive. There is a bypass around Warrenton. Or another way from Winchester would be I-81 south to I-66 east to pick up Route 17 south down to I-95, that way you miss a little more of 2 lane road. If you go I-81 to I-77 there is a long downgrade on I-77 just as you go over the state line from Fancy Gap VA to NC. It is about a 6 mile downgrade. On a clear day you can see about 40 miles from the top.

+1 on the I-81 to I-66 to Route 17.
That is a fine way to get to I-95 from Winchester.

Thanks guys for the replies. The problem started with the DW wanting to go to Floyd on the way down. The TV has just over 200,000 and is towing at max GVW so I wanted to avoid the hills. I usually went the 66 to 17 to 95 which is what I think I will choose. The solution is to stay at Candy Hill, visit our daughter and make the Floyd part a overnight trip and motel it. Thanks; Frank
