Submit your on this road.
- This is the old road up the mountain to Asheville, which was replaced by I-40.
You can reach it via Old US-70 at the Old Fort end, and via Yates Avenue in Swannanoa.
Both ends are paved, and the middle section (about 5 miles) is hard-packed dirt, all in surprisingly good condition.
Very light local traffic only - modern semis wouldn't fit under many of the railroad overpasses.
A sweet taste of The Way Travel Used To Be (TM).
