Short, but an insane silly road that has you feeling you're going to drive off of the road. Serious gradients here, folks.

For such a short ride it packs a bit of a punch. Even with the 25/35 speed limit you can't go much faster because the damned turns are so hard. Twisties, off camber twisties, steep up/downhill twisties, steep up/downhill off camber twisties and some sweepers thrown in for the cherry on top. I liked it quite a lot for such a shorty, and it sets you up great for 209 North, which I recommend doing, for 'The Rattler.' Face it, assuming you're coming in from 40 (West or East) what would you rather do? Slab it to 209 North, which looks like a very boring part, or take this little monster?

BEWARE: Not a ride for beginners! Rest stop staring location in Marion, NC. Ride 226 to 226a around Little Switzerland and then up 226 to Spruce Pine. Take a curve break on Hwy 19 to Double Island Rd. Ride north on until you can't on this road and double back south to NC80. Ride NC80 back to the starting rest stop.

Blue Ridge Parkway / Skyline Drive : Asheville - Roanoke - Front Royal (USA_TTC 1)

Great Curves and Stunning Nature along one of America's best motorcycling roads Approximately 500 miles of some of the best and most scenic twisting tarmac in North America. Enjoying the beautiful nature and the stunning curves all the way from Asheville, North Carolina into Roanoke, Virginia. This is very nicely maintained road with lots of grip but there can also be wildlife (deers, bears, etc) so be on the lookout for those! Highest section between Soco Gap and Wagon Road Gap a particular highlight Note: Some sections of this road are closed in winter.

Cherohalo Skyway / Tail of the Dragon Loop
NC - Cherokee/Graham/Clay... > North Carolina > United States > America
August 19, 2015 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

The Cherohalo Skyway is very scenic. Most any rider of any skill level can ride it. The Tail of the Dragon is very technical and is best for experienced riders or thrill seekers. There are several riders killed each year on the Dragon. Pay close attention to your riding, speed and what is up ahead

Great curvy mountain road. Gravel in roadway at some corners due to cars. Hardly no straights.

You will definitely want to travel this road South to North so you will be pulling uphill in the twisties. This road has lots of elevation change, very tight corners, switch backs etc.
Don't take this road lightly, it contains some very dangerous curves.
