Written Directions

Where Route 50 and route 53 meet, head south east on Route 50 where you will quickly come up on Old Maple Hill road. Take a right (head southwest) for 8 sweet miles till it hits Shaw Highway.

Scenery

Mostly farm houses. The road is popular with motorcyclists primarily for the challenge challenging turns. Road has decreasing radius turns, aswell as a few straight-aways to open the throttle. Its a very unpopulated road, mostly just farms. Bridge on the eastern part of it (Supposedly won't be finished til mid November 12') but the western portion is still wide open.

Drive Enjoyment

The portions with decreasing radius turns have been repaved and is very nice, the rest of it still still pretty good aswell.

Tourism Opportunities

Gas station right before the road, nothing else.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

Popular road that gets used a lot by motorcyclist.

Living in Wilmington, we don't have many twisties in the area. Old Maple Hill Road is the closest one that offers some fun challenging turns. The good thing is this road is usually completely empty. About the only negative is that this road is too short. But I usually turn around at the gas station and do it over!

The road is in rough condition at first but really gets nice right before all of the turns, its a fun but short road.

Decent road, especially for the area. There ARE some decreasing radius corners depending on which way you ride the road. Cruisers be warned! I have personally helped more than one cruiser rider from the area into an ambulance because they overcooked the entry. They aren't difficult corners, but it's so flat and straight around here that people get surprised even after being warned.
