North Carolina / NC-226

101 Miles of western North Carolina scenery that crosses the state from South Carolina to Tennessee. "The Diamondback" is the alter ego of NC-226A, a really fun section full of turns, hills, and beautiful mountain vistas. Local business interests are trying to turn it into another "Must Run" mecca, like the Tail of The Dragon. I think the simple fact that driveways and local traffic make this a sometimes dangerous run diminishes the potential to be another outstanding road.
