Written Directions

From Historic Saluda, NC take US 176 towards Campobello SC. When you get to the southern end, you can then jump on the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway if you wish - https://www.motorcycleroads.com/motorcycle-roads/south-carolina/cherokee-foothills-scenic-highway.

Scenery

The road offers a range of scenery. Leaving Saluda you are surrounded by mountains and rivers and will see some waterfalls from the road. This twisty section is great riding and great scenery. As you transition out of the Mountains (the portion that heads into South Carolina begins to flatten out) you will be surrounded by apple and peach orchards for nice country ride. Fuel is available along the route and great dining can be found at each end.

Drive Enjoyment

Great twisties on 176 along the river. The route is a state maintained roadway so conditions are excellent.

Tourism Opportunities

In Saluda you can see the historic train station and eat at the Green River BBQ. As you leave Saluda on 176 you will encounter a great twisty road along the North Pacolet River. A short detour in Campobello takes you to Campbells covered bridge the last remaining covered bridge in SC.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

There are many waterfalls near the route and white water and zipline excursions as well
