The Old Valley Pike

U.S. 11 and I-81 follow the paths of much earlier highways? The Great Wagon Road dates from colonial times and was used by people traveling from Philadelphia to settle the backcountry of Virginia and the Carolinas. Parts of the route in Virginia follow an even older path, the Warriors' Road.
