Best route from Boone, NC area?

This trip will be my first time "serious downhill". We will be at Alumalina in September, then in the Fleetwood/Boone area until heading for Falluminum in October. Mapquest is recommending 421 to Wilkesboro (some serious grades coming down from BRP) and then over to Morganton. Alternate route is 221 from Boone down, but I have driven that and it is pretty twisty. Any local knowledge?

Thanks,

Al

After looking at Google Maps, I recall that the bad part of 221 was going into Blowing Rock and the suggested route out of Boone is 105 which is fine. The only potential worrisome spots look like the Black Mountain grade on I-40 near Asheville which I think is uphill westbound and US 64 south and west of Franklin. Anyone have any information on 64?

Thanks,
Al

I have driven the route in from Franklin (64) is very nice 2 lane road with long grades. You will be downshifting, but not worried so much about curves. 175 / 75 from 64 to Hiawassee is a narrow 2 lane road, but not bad. There is a one lane bridge, but there is little traffic and good sight distance.

Well, I can't speak to the roads, but if you come through Franklin, NC you have the opportunity to visit one of our favorite restaurants - Cafe Rel. This is really a fabulous restaurant, so don't be discouraged because it is located in a busy gas station. Yes, gas station. Cash only, no reservations - think "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld. Stand in line quietly, do as the owner says; he is watching you. You are likely to wait in line, because everyone knows this is a rare "find"; worth it. Bon appetite!

PS: Did I mention the crab bisque??

Oh, and 64 west of Franklin into Hiawassee is no problem, just a bit steep but not bad at all.

If you need a place to stay between Franklin and Hiawassee (after a big rich meal at Cafe Rel) choose Standing Indian Campground, which is in the Nantahala Forest and a really great (boon docking) campground with some gorgeous hikes.
