From Cumberland Knob southward you will encounter rolling hills with panoramic views of the Piedmont to the east. Pastureland, meadows, and apple orchards comprise much of the scenery between Milepost 217 and 230. Milepost 221.5 to Milepost 230.1 is relatively flat. This is one of the rare straightaways on the Parkway where cycling is a breeze—enjoy. Big Pine Creek meanders from one side of the Parkway to the other.
