Scenic drive: NC Hwy 215

Hwy 215 in North Carolina is part of the Forest heritage scenic byway. I runs north and south between Rosman and Hwy 276. It is very twisty with many pull offs once you are in the mountains. We started from Rosman and rode north till we crossed the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had a picnic at an awesome overlook right on the side of the mountain. The traffic is not as heavy as the roads closer to the national park or the more popular Cherohala.

One of the first sites you will come to are the Falls on french Broad river. They are viewed from the private property of Living waters ministry. There is a small pulloff, on the west side, and then you have to scramble down the bank. The views are worth it. It is PRIVATE property so be respectful.The next series is from where we stopped for lunch.As you can see this is a spectacular fall drive. The barns, fields and vistas are gorgeous.
