A little clarification on the gravel road in to Black Bear....

Are they just normal country gravel roads or are we dealing with baseballs and baby heads?

This is leaving Black Bear and heading out over the mountain on the dirt road.


















...and this one is continuing on down Little Stony Creek Rd to the overlook of Lake Watauga on 321.

I did all the Beaver Rally in Murphy, NC including some local area rides- Brown Mt., Baldin, etc. Let's meetup at the camp.

I have to work, but if you are interested in afternoon riding/barbequing/sightseeing in the Moranton, NC area (not too far from Black Bear), you could probably drop your IQ by a few points here. I help young people do that every day.

Anybody planning the route, keep in mind that the Traildays are going on in Damascus, VA... going through DAM will prolly be a clusterfuck
