    Meadows of Dan is a great area. I have been doing recon trying to find the good dirt and gravel.

    I bet you didn't see another soul up there (I didn't)

    The other exit was plenty good, and I made it to Burkes via the easy gravel road, so it's all good.

    The fire-tower is near NC209, but you need "connections" with a key to get up there...

    the water-crossing is in the Gulf near Hartford, TN

    Thanks. I knew that tower did not look at all familiar.

    Is this thread dead? My lady and I are headed down to WNC area and looking for pointers at some good dirt/ gravel dualsporting routes.

    Much appreciate any direction!

    We'll also be looking for a friendly driveway to launch from and leave our car and trailer for a week!

    beers!

    Any specific WNC? I'm in Morganton. You are welcome to leave it at my farm. There are some places that you can ride-n-hike if you're in to that jazz. Sod background-.jpg color table rock.jpg

    We'd like to hit the ashville area and 129 of course. But we also want to find some good Backcountry riding and will be camping if the weather is agreeable. We're on her tw200 and my 525.
