Sounds like a trip up to Spruce Knob, highest point in WV. 12 miles uphill all the way, used to be gravel and the tourist traffic pounded it into moon dust. They finally paved it in the early 21st century, been wanting to take a bike ride up and check it out.About 9 miles.
In the Fall it can be 50 degrees at the bottom and a full blizzard on top. Got a crazy video of that.
