Roads & Biking
There is truly a variety of tarmac for you to explore in this area. To the west, you’ll find more open spaces with long stretches of highway, and to the east you’ll find tighter roads with more twists and turns. Road conditions are generally good, but keep an eye on gravel driveway washouts and vehicles turning around blind corners. There is one short stretch (about a mile) of gravel road to get to the Roan High Bluff Cloudland Trail, but it is easy and doable on any type of motorcycle.
