No, there’s no “Murder Mountain” in western North Carolina. This ride derives its name from two interesting sites you’ll pass along the route. The “Murder” half of the name comes from the macabre story you’ll learn about as you twist your way north on NC 80 through the town of Kona. The “Mountain” along this route is Roan Mountain. Roan Mountain climbs to the staggering elevation of 6,267 ft. above sea level. As if the mountain scenery and a little murder mystery weren’t enough, the roads and the superb views are the real stars of this ride. Seldom used by commercial traffic, the routes chosen for this ride are twisty, clean, and fun to ride on any kind of motorcycle! Points of interest: The town of Kona, with its cemetery, small church, and the artist’s gallery. Roan Mountain State Park (TN) and the Roan Mountain Rhododendron Gardens and Information Center atop Roan Mountain.
