This wooded residential route through north Asheville neighborhoods is so quiet it feels like a country lane. You'll want to relax, slow down, and enjoy a leisurely pace as you pass by some of Asheville's loveliest homes and gardens. The middle of the ride is highlighted by a two and a half mile ridge cruise overlooking Ashville and the historic Grove Park Inn. Check your brakes well before this ride -- you'll drop off the ridge into a steep, exhilarating descent complete with sharp hairpin turns, ending at a beautiful rose garden. Points of interest: Community Rose Garden at end of downhill; Historic Grove Park Inn and Country Club; UNCA Campus and Arboretum.
