Haywood County Loop

About

One of many ways to loop ride some of the best roads Haywood County has to offer and never be far from the barn. Don’t take it lightly, these roads are as challenging as you’ll find. A great loop for the days when you might want to stay close to home.

US 276 to Rabbit Skin Rd, Cross bridge to Riverside, then to NC 209. Hop south to Upper Crabtree Mtn Rd (watch for turn near middle), follow to Canton, then onto Thickety Rd to Clyde. Poison Cove Rd to Stamey Cove Rd, then NC 215 to Bethel. Return on US 276 through Waynesville.

45 miles 1 1/2 to 2 hours ride

Moderately difficult
