  • Needmore Rd.Little Tn. River

    Has anyone ridden this road on their wing. While staying at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge and Resort last summer Just outside of Robbinsville N.C. the owner told us this was his favorite road in the Mountains. Part of it is gravel. He told us this as we were leaving for home so we didn't get to ride it . Needmore Road Along The Little Tennessee River Does anyone else know of a great road off the beaten path that they would like to share that's located around the Great Smokey Mountains or which roads are your favorite in the area. Thanks Tommy

    We've ridden past that road a number of times. (Moonshine 28 is one of my favorite rides over there.) We'll have to remember 1365 on our next trip.

    Another one well worth the ride is TN32 / Mt. Sterling Rd on the eastern side of Gatlinburg. Take 321 out of Gatlinburg toward I-40 (as opposed to toward Pigeon Forge). At the 321/73/32 T, turn right on 32. The Tennessee portion of the road is paved. Awesome ride! We got to the state line about 7/8 of the way on the route and turned around when it changed to gravel. No complaints - great ride both ways with a lot of meet-yourself curves. Now that I have the CT, I'll do the gravel portion. Interestingly, we stumbled onto the far end of this road several years ago when we mistakenly took exit 451 off I-40. It turned gravel after the first turn and we turned back and went on to the next exit. Not this time.

      I am glad you shared that information because in the past I have wondered how hyw 32 really was. I think this year I will hit it also.
