Cleanerman, you beat me to it. As you can see by how sunny it is in the picture, I waited until the fog burned off.

If you wanted the "Cream of the Harvest", you would visit this old mill.

Don't step too close to the edge.

Rich Mtn Fire Tower

Question to falcofred and dwheil:

When you rode to the fire tower, which side did you go up, Hot Springs or Paint Creek and how was the road?

Thanks.

I rode south from TN 70 stopped at the tower and then continued south coming out on NC 209 just north of Hot Springs.
The road is in good condition, it is passible on a V-Strom if its been dry for a few days, some spots the gravel was thin and there was dirt mud that could be tricky if wet on street tires.

This may be the only existing covered bridge in Greene County.

I went up from the Paint Creek side and they just graded and regraveled it to the state line. Not deep gravel so its easy to ride.

I got in line for the one bay car wash before the tractor.
If you have to wait too long, you can go across the street to J. A's store. The area is named after an aromatic tree.
