Old Weaver and Other Roads Near Falls Lake + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
This route is NW of downtown Raleigh, NC. It starts and ends in the Brier Creek area. The route goes through Falls Lake area all the way to Creedmore and loops back through part of Raleigh. See the online map for specific road/directions.
This route starts and ends in the parking lot of Walmart in Brier Creek area (doesn't sound very appealing, I know but it gets better and better). We go through part of state highway 1641 and enter on Virgil road, one of the most twisty roads in the area. Continuing NE on state road 1811, the route crosses Falls lake on 2 bridges with a beautiful view of the lake on both sides. The route then continues on windy roads: old weaver, new light road, pleasant union church road and part of six forks road.
This road has a fair amount of curves and as mentioned above, a portion of the route travels along Virgil road which is one of the most twisty roads in the area. The road is well done on most sections on this route. One needs to watch for gravel dragged out on the road from driveways. There are occasional potholes and bumps in the roads but nothing alarming.
Not too many road amenities once you get on back roads. But this route covers part of state hw 98 and six forks road which has all the usual road side restaurants and grocery shops. I have seen few Walgreens and CVS pharmacies as well. There is Park road bar and grill on the intersection of 1811 and cheek road.
