Oh, I almost forgot, near Bryson City is this thing called the road to nowhere. It seems that back during WWII the government wanted to build a dam for a power plant. The promised the locals they would build a new road so they could access their family cemeteries. Well surprise, surprise. The road never got finished. They did get it about half done however along with a really nifty tunnel. The road down to the tunnel is quite nice, good pavement and lots of curves. Itís an out and back sort of thing being that it ends at the tunnel. But it might be a nice ride, especially since I believe traffic enforcement along it might be very light. Google it to find directions. Or just ask in Bryson City.

The disgruntled local sign just outside the road. Plus a couple of pics of the tunnel.
