This segment is 65 miles long with no dependable gasoline stations between Pineville and Whitesburg. One should obtain gas at Pineville or Whitesburg, or cross the Pine Mountain gaps at US-421 to Harlan or KY-160 to Cumberland for gas stations. This route changes highway numbers throughout the range. The entire road is paved, but some sections have no shoulder. Gravel may appear on the pavement at mine entrances or at intersections. The road may be busy with fast moving coal-haul trucks which may cross the center line, therefore travel slowly and allow the trucks enough room to get out of your way. The truck drivers are very good but are paid by the number of trips that they make.Haul trucks do not operate on Sundays and only partially on Saturdays. Travel slowly, be alert, and enjoy the ride.
