Default Info on area

http://www.brevardnc.com/

http://www.historichendersonville.org/

http://www.chimneyrockpark.com/

here are a couple of things on that area, hendersonville is just a ride away from brevard....there is a very special place in right outside of brevard that would have to be a must do ride for us if that is in fact where we go It is called a Pretty Place and its at the YMCA youth camp just an amazing place

if its brevard we decide to stay it there are many sites from there to see and ride too...

Camp Greenville or "Pretty Place" is off of hwy 276 in northern Greenville county. The ride up 276 to Ceasars Head is our version of the dragon.

yes have been there many times..... I think a ride out to pretty place and Ceasars head for lunch then down to 11 to 178 back into NC and through Brevard on 64 to Hendersonville if in fact that is where we stay /,brevard would be a better place to stay I think based on the rides we could do, from there on sat would be a great ride, Brice can lead and I can

Highway 74 between Asheville and Bat Cave is a medium-twisty road but very pretty in the fall and has little traffic. Keep going down by Lake Lure and the road gets twistier, but has more traffic. Sometimes lots more.
US 276 between Brevard and the BRP is good. There's also 215 by the Graveyards, pretty challenging and the road surface is not the greatest.
+2 on Camp Greenville, and there is the Old Saluda Grade on US 176, Old US 25 through the Greenville watershed, Gap Creek Road between the watershed and Jones Gap....

The area must be very popular as I have another site I post on that has a group from Great Britian and some members from the states coming to Maggie Valley at the end of July to ride the whole area and to go to the Motorcycle Museum.

Is the Blue Ridge Parkway on the list of places to see? I don't know how close that is to where we are going to be.

Oh yes, definitely. The BRP passes by about 15 miles from the hotel.
