Re: Wayah Rd, NC

Actually, Wayah sucks...
The pavement is rutted and uneven most turns has gravel in them.

Becareful.

Someday NCDOT will learn how to pave a road correctly.
They need to stop laying down the tar and covering it with stone.
This makes for hazzardous conditions.
We rode Wayah last weekend. The nine miles by the river is very uneven. The bike follows the rutts between the gravel. It makes it difficult to navigate.
On the other end towards Franklin, the cars running off of the road has rocks kicked up on the roadway.

28 is a much better road.

Re: Wayah Rd, NC

LAF and I were in Franklin during the last week of June. We decided against Wayah after hearing about the road conditions. We already had our fill of new oil and fresh stone chips. Rte. 28 north from Franklin to Rte. 19 is great. They don't call it the Hellbender for nothing. Also 64 east from Franklin up to Highlands and Cashiers is a don't miss. Be sure to stop at the Carolina Smokehouse for ribs when you get into Cashiers.

Take care,
Chris

Carolina Smokehouse

I am doing a trip there on Saturday. We passed it last weekend and we were to short on time so we couldn't stop. That and we had already eaten in Maggie Valley.

Carolina Smokehouse was featured on Food Channel...
They got very good reviews.

I rode it a couple of weeks ago and greatly enjoyed it. Just take your time. The road is challenging, but if you slow down you might manage to catch some of the great scenery.
