This road is Highway 28 starting in Highland and ending at Deal's Gap. The road has lots of twists, sharp curves, but it is fairly level all the way through. If you haven't been on this route you need to try it. The views are beautiful and the road is never straight. The road is very smooth, so you'll ride with ease.
There are pull off spots all along this route, even in the area along the river. You can take a swim to cool off during the hot day. You won't find many gas stations, shops, or restaurants along this route, so you need to stop at the towns that are on this route.
