Scenery

This route rolls near the North, also so, South Toe Rivers. It's primarily woods and farmland, with some light residential area. As you can see in my videos it's not particularly picturesque, as this is more of a backyard playground type of route. Take it easy, a bit. Then again, the road's twisty enough that 35-40mph is all you're going to get out of it. That's still enough to have fun, in my opinion.

Drive Enjoyment

Some tight ones, one or two that may take you by surprise, some sweepers and just a general good time of it. As of late September 2020 the road is in fair to good shape, barring the occasional kick up of stones, and some mud/dirt off of people's driveways. It's a treat of a ride, but nothing I would go out of my way for. Then again, with 80 right next door this can make for a solid loop.

Tourism Opportunities

None. Well, unless you're going to go see something on NC 19E.

Not particularly scenic. Not insanely twisty. Just a good, solid, fun road. It's in pretty good shape, too. Some mild wash out from people's driveways, but this was during a pretty rainy time in NC. Mind the small residential areas, but to be honest, the road is twisty enough that you're not going to really be hoofing it down there. Fun road all around, IMO.
