this is a great ride! the road gets real good when you get on hwy 85 to Grimsley. it's better for a sport rider...and be careful; some of the road conditions are hazardous. you could get in trouble real quick. so pay attention!

This is one of our favorite rides. My wife Janet and I travel this route many times.It's great for any type of bike.This area has a very rich history from its coal mining past. ( If only the hills and hollers could talk! )

Rode this on the way to Little Switzerland, NC on the second day of a 9 day trip. I nice curvy and hilly ride until Crawford, then there are some nice twisty sections. Very nice scenery, as well.
