    Hey Ken, so am I. Looks like we will be in the Boon NC area for about a week in mid sept. Would like to get some good D/S tracks - the usual - Epic views from forest roads or even some open trails.

    Anybody wanna share?

    Not sure if this is still active, but southwest of Boone are a couple good gravel roads. One is near Collettsville. Look for Adako Rd. You want to find state road 1407. This is commonly referred to as Maple Sally or Maple Grove Rd. It shows up on google maps if you zoom in. Fairly long and isolated when I was there.

    Another good gravel road is old 105 going by Linville falls. It goes by Linville Gorge and winds down to Lake James. Lots of good scenery. A little washed out in a few places, but not bad.

    The last I know of in that area is Table Rock Rd. You can look this up on google maps, but it is sort of between the first two areas I mentioned.

    Hope this helps. Lots of good riding in the area.

    Thanks Grant, I'll add that to my list of roads to visit, we will be staying in a cabin just southwest of Boone already. Should arrive 9/15 and be riding area the rest of the week. Also bringing my N.C. Gazetteer TOPO map book - I usually use it so find the smallest lines in remote areas then plug them into the 60csx using map source.

    Maybe I"ll see 1 or 2 of you out there that week. :ricky
