BOOTLEGGER

The bootlegging trade flourished in these Appalachian Mountains and led directly to the "lawless decade" of the 1920s. Mountain folks utilized the curvy backroads and their knowledge of hart-to-find locations to get around the revenuers. Bootlegger's Run takes you from Grundy to small towns of West Virginia and back. 145 miles of back road awesome just waiting for you to ride.
