    Road to nowhere NC

    i went on a road trip to NC last year (im from GA) to go mountain biking around Bryson city and stumbled upon the road to nowhere, it was a fantastic drive (but it literally goes nowhere, it ends at a gate) bonus of that area you have the Tail of the Dragon about half an hour away and your not too far from the Blue Ridge, which i also drove both of those. unfortunately i was driving a 5spd corolla at the time, i think im going to have to revisit now...

    The whole area around Bryson is gorgeous...Smokies to the north, Nantahala to the south, Jocassee and Foothills a little ways southeast, and great roads all over the place! I've backpacked a lot of that area.

    Just about every road in the Western North Carolina area is fantastic. If you haven't read the story on the Road to Nowhere, you should definitely check it out. It's pretty darn interesting. The Tail of the Dragon, while I haven't done it in my STi, is one of the most fun but most difficult roads I've ever driven. I don't know a lot of places that have the sort of driving in the East that Western North Carolina does….So I recommend that everyone who is anywhere near that area to check it out!

    The Knoxville area has a couple clubs that make regular dragon runs and foothills parkway tours etc. There's a big one put on by Knox Subaru Owners Club and Motion Lab each year. Keep your eye out for it it usually lasts a couple days in the spring.

    I go to the Tail of the Dragon once a year with a few dozen people with various makes and models of vehicle. It's like a religion. Tail of the Dragon, Cherahola Skyway, Road to nowhere, Back of the dragon, The Snake, etc. These are all roads down there everyone should visit.
