Rainbow Springs Rd/Junaluska/Woods Rd ???

I'm looking to shortcut from the Hayesville area over to Wayah Rd. I've seen those roads on the map, but what are they like? I'm dual-sporting and was looking for something interesting rather than just running up 64 to Franklin.
I am trying to put together a long day of twisty's and off-pavement from Suches to Robbinsville. Maybe catch some dirt off the Cherohala.
Thanks

Great Ride

On the back end of town in Hayesville you can pick up Tusquittee Road. Tusquittee Rd is a great road to opening her up a little with some great twisties. Tusquittee will eventually turn to gravel and become not so groomed in places. Tusquittee will top out at Tuni Gap...the gate to left may still be closed. Turning right and heading down the mtn you will come to Big Choga and back on the hard top. Big Choga to Junaluska.... right on Junaluska toward Wayah Rd... just before the water pipe that passes OVER the road on your left is Old River Rd. It is a nice gravel road the brings you out further down on Wayah Rd.

It is a great ride! A few pics.

Tusquittee Rd............



Tuni Gap Rd.............



Junaluska Rd.............



Old River Rd..........



Wayah Rd..........



Have fun

Guys, many thanks. Great info and pictues. Is it my imagination, or is that house not level?

Now, I'll have see to about stringing together more off-pavement to get me from Suches to Robbinsville.

Once again thanks and ride often.

Rainbow Springs is a lot of fun The house is level, and the location is incredible. You can almost reach out and touch the waterfall from the front porch.

Good info... you answered a question I put up today in another post.

I'm doing an all street ride from Fontana to Suches next month. What's the best (meaning twisty)paved route down to Suches?

28 to Highlands to Warwoman to Clayton.

Old 441 to Tiger

Bridge Creek to Burton Dam Rd to 197

197 to the roads near Helen then the usual route to Suches

If you park here ...



And look across the street and down to the river, what you will see is ...



We were told by some locals it was okay to walk across. I don't think it leads anywhere.

It just leads to a little clearing in the woods. FYI.
