Hwy 221

Went for a ride Wednesday morning and decided to ride to Boone and have lunch. Well after lunch, I went to Blowing Rock and took 221 over to Linville. Has anyone here been on 221, really fun. It's about 19 miles with around 80 turns, some pretty tight. Anyway if you get a chance take it instead of the Parkway. Mid week= no traffic

Re: Hwy 221

Yup...it is a GREAT ROAD! Great to live in a place like North Carolina, isn't it.

And not be stuck in some place like Cleebeland, JOE!!

Hi Tony,

Yep, 221 is great. And don't tell anyone about our favorite picnic area at the little rest area just south of Blowing Rock. No views, but usually pretty quite.

If you want fun check out NC-80 between Marion and the BRP. It was a blast until that last turn before the parkway!
