Description

Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

76 miles round trip highway through some very lush forest, past a historic forestry school, scenic waterfall and great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

You can drive this highway getting different views during the different seasons. Along the drive, have your camera ready for beautiful vistas, Looking Glass Falls, and many adventures along the highway. The views are especially beautiful in the autumn with the leaves changing colors. 

This route doesn't typically show up in GPS or google maps, but you can see a map of the loop on Romantic Asheville's website.
