Roan Road - Tennesee Route 143 & North Carolina Route 261

North Carolina > United States > America
May 30, 2021 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

A good road that would be better with newer pavement, as of 5/2021. You go up to above 5,000 feet, so be prepared for a temperature drop, if you're on a motorcycle. The traffic is fairly light, though there seems to be a fair amount of people at the top.

My YouTube video will tell you more than I can. (And there's hundreds more videos where that came from.)

North Carolina - County Route 711

North Carolina > United States > America
May 30, 2021 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

I view this road as high risk, high reward. It has twigs, branches a downed limb or two and dirty sides, but the road SURFACE (the actual pavement) is smooth and the twists just keep on coming.

I did this road in a car and had zero problems, but those on a motorcycle may wish to take care. Perhaps the road will be cleaned up when you visit it? It wasn't just 'stuff blown down from a storm' type of neglect, but seemingly accumulated neglect, so be careful.

North Carolina - Crabtree Mountain Road

North Carolina > United States > America
March 13, 2021 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

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.

Jacksonville - Old Maple Hill run

North Carolina ... > United States > America
September 17, 2017 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

the route has some decent corners. its the most direct non straight road routes to old Maple Hill road. arguably one of the best roads in the area which isn't saying much because the area is very flat and bland. Be careful during and after heavy rain storms, old Maple tends to flood.
