Watauga Loop Motorcycle Ride Professional Review and Guide
"This route gets its name from Watauga Lake in Tennessee and Watauga County in North Carolina. It takes you from Spruce Pine, NC through Hampton, TN along the shore of Watauga Lake, and through Mountain City, TN, ending in Boone. Along the way, you’ll pass an abandoned Hollywood movie set, cruise through the scenic Toe River Valley, and dine on the shore of a mountain lake.
Meanwhile, the road beneath you twists like a snake. With so much to see and do on this long ride, consider making it a two-day tour. Points of interest: The filming location of Winter People; Watauga Lake with picnic areas, lodging, boat rentals, and restaurant; Doe River Valley; Mountain City, TN; Boone, NC."
