Brushy Mountain Road is a little local secret. It climbs a mountain as the name suggests and along they way there are swerves and some very sharp curves. This run will give the biker everything...from places to test his cornering abilities to straight stretches to get up to speed fast. At some vantage points there are some places you can see long distance scenery from the mountain top. Also along the way you ride through some of NC best apple growing country. Some of these roads are where old timey NASCAR drivers like Junior Johnson learned to drive... sometimes running white lightning in their cars as they ran from the law. For the uninitiated...Wilkes County was proclaimed Moon Shine capital of the world in days gone by.
Nice ride to see country scenery and experience interesting turns and curves. You can continue on 268 to W Kerr Scott Dam if you wish and then return and take the loop shown...or at the top of the loop you can continue up the mountain toward Blowing Rock and Boone. There is even a campground available in the Ferguson area exclusively for bikers.
