Written Directions

From the Blue ridge park way about 7 miles north of the Pisgiah Inn this will be the first paved road on your left. OR you can access from the bottom off Hwy 19 at Smokey Park Veterinary Hospital

Scenery

The elevation drop is pretty dramatic and plenty of twist and turns beautiful hills and trees untill you flatten out at the bottom and then the secenery opens up into the farm land.

Road Quality

The road is is good shape but watch for gravel in some of the curves. There are plenty of turns especially on the southern portion of the route!

Roadside Amenities

There is a park at the bottom before you start out in to the flat land very good place to cool your breaks or turn around and run back up the side of the Mountain.

Rode this while doing the BRP in May 2016. Rt 151 is up there with the Tail of the Dragon and some other absurdly dangerous routes if not taken cautiously. For one there is minimal guard rail as you maneuver hair pin turns along the side of the mountain. It's a road that should be respected but can be an incredible amount of fun if you stay within your riding limits.
I ended up dragging my skid plate on the bottom of my VStrom a few times through the U-turn type switchbacks, which put a grin on my face.
There's not much else once you get to the bottom, just a route into Candler/Asheville. There is one gas station on the left just a few miles from the bottom.
