Written Directions

From Troy, NC simply take Pekin Road all the way south down to Rockingham (the road changes names around Route 73 to Cartledge Creek Road).

Scenery

You'll see and smell the lush green pine forests. You'll pass many old farmhouses and open fields. The road occasionally tops a small mountaintop and reveals distant views and nearby ridges. There are many nearby historic sites for detours if you choose. The road winds it's way through the southern edge of the Uwharrie Mountains and offers some stunning scenery especially in the fall.

Road Quality

This is by far one of the best motorcycle roads in the State. Whoever designed it must have been a motorcycle rider. From long sweepers to properly banked tighties you'll want to do this one over and over.

Roadside Amenities

There's not much on the road but plenty of nearby things to do. Town Creek Indian Mound State Historic Site, Morrow Mountain State Park. There are a couple of great homemade ice cream stands in nearby Ellerbe.

Love this Road. I use it in part to travel from High Rock to Myrtle Beach. It cuts through forest land owned by paper co. some of it has been harvested recently but other parts offer great views. can be combined with the "gold run" through Uwharie forest using 109 and Ophir RD. Little to no Businesses or even houses.

This is a great route, but I like to ride it in reverse. Going from Rockingham to Troy gives better views and the curves seem to handle better. Absolutely gorgeous.
