Written Directions

Wayah Road from US19/74 to US64, or the reverse route.

Scenery

Hard to keep your eyes on the road at times! The west end starts you going up a gorge tracing the stream with some waterfalls mixed in. Once you reach the peak (the AP trail crosses around here) there is a large lake at the top. Nice winding road around it then the fun begins; lots of tight curves and more elevation changes. Keep your eyes on the road: not much in guard rails protecting you from some rather large drop-offs! Eventually you "wind down" on some less technical roads and at a little gas station/convenience shop. IIRC, this station has REAL gas (no ethanol).

Drive Enjoyment

I'm rating this as a three. Some sections are real nice; some are dirty. The west side of the road is hard for me to read where it looks like there's loose gravel, but it's really not.

Tourism Opportunities

Not a whole lot between the two main roads. Take this drive for the scenery and the curves.

We went from 64 to 74, I would recommend heading the other direction if possible. You'll get a better view of the stream and falls. Very nice ride and the road was good.

First time on this road. Lots of twists. Some great scenery. Many sections are recently re-paved. I'd love to ride it again.

Great road. Found out about it reading a bulletin board at Deals Gap. Not a lot of traffic. Great scenery, good elevation change.
