I think we rode that stretch on the Smoky's M&G in 2016. As I recall, it is a challenging ride. Beware, lots of sharp, blind turns.

Yep. Tight road, very sharp curves with little to no room for error. Fun ride. Very close by is 226A up to Little Switzerland. Ride one up, ride the other down or vise versa

Done it several times like that.

You can also hit the Blue Ridge Parkway at the top of 226A. Stop and see the view from the bar at the resort if you go there. It’s amazing. I’ll see if I still have a pic (that can’t do it the justice of seeing it in person).

Like Kyle and Greg said, very curvy but awesome and very scenic road that goes up to the blue ridge parkway and then you can take the blue ridge over to Little Switzerland. It's actually just one leg of the Diamondback Loop.

If you have an opportunity to ride it definitely do it!

Yeah, that was the weekend that made me come up with the bolts thru the floorboards for sliders. Wore out the factory moles, Ti sliders. Grade 8 bolts and nuts worked best. Had to replace them a couple times too

Isn't that the one that had a bunch check of loose gravel in blind corners? Had quite a few of us puckering when we got to the bottom.

Not for me. The one called the Rattler had the gravel issues when I rode it.

Although, it may have in 2015. I met up with you guys later in the day that year
