Written Directions

Walnut Cove NC to the Virginia line on Route 8. This route is good all the way to Tuggles Gap Va.

Scenery

All farm land and forests. Pretty average for NC

Road Quality

Great road surface, and the sweepers and twisties are fantastic. Many times you get that throw her left then throw her right over and over again.

Roadside Amenities

Hanging Rock Park is there, but not much else. There are a few small country filling stations to take breaks at.

My husband and I both loved this ride and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys those twisty & winding roads! There is a fantastic section that has embanked curves that will have you riding left then right then left again and so on like rollercoaster! This was one great ride! If you need an end destination to put into your GPS, Tuggles Gap Restaurant and Motel is a cute little place to grab a bite to eat, a drink, and talk with plenty of other riders enjoying the same route (Hwy 8). We didn't stay in the motel but went on to Floyd, VA about 6 miles further down 8 (more fun curves on the road) and stayed at the Pine...something (Tavern I think) Inn and that was an adorable place with only 7 rooms. Very clean and friendly owners, good homecookin' from the restaurant too. As far as level of difficulty, know your skills, pay attention to the signs, and ride within your comfort level. Hope y'all find this review helpful and add this road to your ride list!

This is a great road. I ride it almost every weekend. If you are looking for a place to eat stop in at the Dan River Family Restaurant. Great BBQ

One of the top 3 roads in NC, IMO. Start the ride at the intersection of Hwy 65 & Hwy 8. Don't leave Hwy 8 'till you get to Tuggle's Gap / BRP.
