Short Scenic Ride - Hwy 194 + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Hwy 194 runs between Boone NC and West Jefferson NC. It is a great ride with many twisties and great views. You can start the ride in Boone, NC just off of Hwy 421 on the east side of town heading toward Wilkesboro. There is a shopping center with a Lowes Foods and Hardees where you make your turn onto Hwy 194. The first bit of the road is a bit rough due to road construction on Hwy 421 but it does smooth out.
The views are of mountains and tree covered roads in many spots. The valley views on some parts of the ride are great.
I give the quality average due to the start at Boone being pretty rough with some potholes and frost heeves that you need to be alert for. Also be aware of gravel in the road from driveways and run off out of the ditches. The road does smooth out and makes for a great ride. There is a mix of sweeping turns,tight curves and throttle twisting straights. This roads gives you everything a motorcycle rider loves.
There is only one store on the ride but this is a short ride with plenty of places at either end in Boone and West Jefferson.
This is a great little side ride you can take while in the Boone NC area if you are looking to take the road less traveled.
