Written Directions

Start in Waynesville, NC and take hwy 23 south to hwy 107 south. 107 is really pretty and fairly easy until you get near the lake. When you get to Cashiers, to east on 64 thru Sapphire to hwy 281 S. Go south on 281 about 7 miles to Whitewater Falls. 20 min hike, well worth it. Get back to 64 and go east again to Toxaway Falls (look for the restaurant I mention above - just before the bridge). Pretty twisty past Toxaway to Brevard, then take US 276 N to Sliding Rock (signs). Continue on past sliding rock and head all the way up to the route's end at Maggie Valley.

Scenery

You'll be traveling through the beautiful Nantahala National Forest known for it's deep mountain gorges and valleys . The lake off Route 107 is gorgeous! Whitewater Falls off Route 281 is worth the 20 minute hike to see it. Stop and wear your swimsuit and slide down Sliding Rock off 276.



Bring your bathing suit for a slide down Slide Rock

Drive Enjoyment

If you want twisties, you've found the right post! Hwy 276 is one of most twisty roads I've ever been on ... it's a mini-dragon. All of these hwy's are great ... no issues or problems.



Stop at the Wheels Through Time Motorcycle Museum

Tourism Opportunities

Gas up in Waynesville, Cashiers, or Brevard. Lots of restaurants in Brevard and Waynesville. Heading east into Toxaway Falls, just before the bridge you will find a restaurant w/a paved which is a nice place for lunch. Sunday had live bluegrass music. Also, there is a type of zoo if you will off 276 that is free on Tuesdays. Stop to see Sliding Rock off 276 and bring your swimsuit to slide down Sliding Rock. As you finish up the loop, you will make your way back to Waynesville and Maggie Valley. Here I recommend Legends bar in Maggie valley. If you like old motorcycles, go thru the Wheels Thru Time Motorcycle Museum, well worth the $12 admission!
