The State of NC TRIED to repave this road (Spring 2008).
They did not do a very good job.

This is a very scenic valley ride - not technical, but lots of sweepers that still leave you with enough attention to enjoy the view!
Can also be part of a detour around US321 construction between Lenoir and Blowing Rock.

Of the 30 miles of road, only about 5 is what I would call "good riding."
The rest is flat and not curvy at all.
On a scale of 1-10, I would give it a 4.

Road follows original path of a drunken cow through beautiful valley.
Not much elevation change, but a fantastic ride if taken briskly.
