Starting in Boone and passing through the small burgs of Valle Crucis, Banner Elk, Cranberry, Minneapolis, Plumtree, and others, this route passes many historic and scenic areas in North Carolina. Along the way, the road twists wildly, and you’ll be along for the ride!
Be sure to visit the original Mast General Store, the ski slopes of Beech Mountain, several good restaurants, and even an abandoned Hollywood movie set. Points of interest: The Mast General Stores (one in Boone and one in Valle Crucis), the turns on the road to Banner Elk, Harley accessory dealership in Banner Elk, Beech Mountain Ski Area, Elk River airstrip, the site of the filming of the movie Winter People in Plumtree, and Linville Caverns.
