Alleghany Back Roads Cruise

Alleghany Back Roads Cruise Professional Review and Guide

"This loop begins and ends at Doughton Park on the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. The excellent landscape architecture often has a picture-postcard quality that glosses over daily existence in this region. There are several thrilling descents and a few steep climbs along this route.

For much of the journey, the road is surrounded by wildflowers and grassy cow pastures. A warm, sunny day in late spring or summer is the ideal time for this route. You'll follow a mountain stream as it winds back to the parkway. Numerous Christmas tree farms of fraser fir and blue spruce climb the hillsides."
