From Highway 64 in Lake Lure, NC go east toward Rutherfordton. After approximately 4 miles you will past a golf course that is on both sides of the road. At the end of the straight there is a slight left and a sharp uphill right. Just before the top of the hill turn left on Buffalo Shoals Rd. between Point of View Restaurant and the Dam Marina.
This road follows the southern edge of Lake Lure in Rutherford County, NC. It provides views of the lake and surrounding mountains if you're brave enough to take you eyes off the road.
Note: This road is curvy and not for beginners. Second gear is too fast for some turns. Also law enforcement in the area is notorious for writing speeding and left of center citations.
There is not much to do along the road but Lake Lure and Chimney Rock have a lot to offer. Lake Lure has a public beach, lake tours, restaurants, motels, bars, etc. Chimney Rock has hiking, shopping, restaurants, etc. Both of these areas are filled with tourists when the weather is nice so expect traffic.
