I ventured up to the newest North Carolina State Park yesterday, Elk Mountain State Park, which is located on Meat Camp Road, just off HWY 194, about 7 miles north of Boone, NC. (First road on the right after the Rebel Flag Pole on Meat Camp Road).
Elk Knob State Park consists of a 1.9 mile hike to the top of Elk Mountain, large parking area, and a circular picnic area. Roads were rock and mostly muddy still. They are working on it.
About a mile down the road from the park is Rich Mountain Road, which connects Meat Camp Road over to Zionville to HWY 421, just before Trade, TN.
This looked to be a 1 lane mountain dirt road, full of ruts and other fun stuff.
Has anyone taken that road before?
