Where you'll be

Most visitors to the area aspire to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway. But, more interesting are the many miles of back roads that are far less traveled and equally scenic. Routes can follow the Toe River, extend to multiple crossings of the Appalachian Trail, and include stops, if desired, at area attractions such as micro-breweries or artists studios.
