The first half of this ride rolls through country valleys and farmland, and the second half takes you through residential sections of the city, past retail stores and light industrial areas. On Newfound Road, expect a scenic, pastoral valley ride. It's a good warm-up for the two-mile climb up and over Hookers Gap. The climb is very strenuous- it really is, so be prepared. You'll return through the older West Asheville business district. Points of interest: UNCA Botanical Gardens; Haywood Road through West Asheville is the original east-west corridor through the Asheville mountains.
