Most Scenic NC Mountain Road

12 posts in this topic

Probably gonna do another week in the mountains this summer and trying to decide where to stay. Probably between the Banner Elk area and the Brevard area.

So far, in my somewhat limited experience the most scenic road I've seen is Hwy 28 between Highlands and Franklin along the Cullasaja River.

That was probably the prettiest road in NC I've been on. This was when you went to Nantahala right? I loved it there & want to go back.

I'd say that's one of the prettiest areaa in North Carolina

On the old Hwy 74 (now ALT 74) between Lake Lure & Ashville/Blue Ridge Parkway.

There's a stretch of switchbacks on the side of the mtn where you can actually look down on the hwy below. Great scenery, great road to take the Corvette on during the Summer. (Winter it can get icy and slick.) Gorgeous scenery though.

Bethel NC....

Edit: not to be confused with Bethel NC on the east coast. It's in Haywood County. Everyone calls it "Gods country" here. Beautiful.

I live only about 10 miles from Highlands and Hwy 64 to Franklin is an awesome drive with plenty of places to stop and be amazed. Now, if you're trying to get somewhere on a timeline it's the worst possible road to travel during the busy season(s).

    • It is the off-season and winning online competitions is kinda our thing.   Let's see if we can't swing this thing.  The Pats need to go home.  We must fight the Evil League of Evil coalition. 
    •   So are you upset that Hillary lost and we stopped investigating her?  Or that in an alternate reality, Hillary won and no one is talking about Russia?  I'm trying to see your point, but alas, you might be too clever for me. Or are we back to it's not fair to expect Trump NOT to have Russian ties because of business interests?  Again, all Trump had to do was completely break from his companies, and he did not.  And we're seeing some serious Russian interests in Trump winning, and a lot of contact between Trump's campaign officials and advisers, which is good or bad? I'm not sure the point you're trying to make.  Is it "yay, Trump won so we can investigate Russian interference with the election and administration!"  Or is it "Boo, if Hillary won she wouldn't be investigated!" Hillary lost.  People came out for Trump in the rust belt. Now that people are looking at Trump, what he's said, what laws he's trying to pass, etc; a lot of information is coming out.  Is that bad?  Or is it just that the media is being unfair to Trump? Maybe I'm just not smart enough to get it.
    • I highly doubt this will upset anyone, unless they are trolling that is.
