This routes covers Stone Mountain, Pilot Mountain and Hanging Rock from Raleigh. Stone mountain and Hanging rock both require a substantial hike from the parking lot but Pilot Mountain has great views right where you park.
Beutiful local route taking 751 and then hitting 42. If you are short on time, this is a perfect 2.5 hour route and has pretty decent curves
This loop takes you through 90, 181, 221 and 321. 268 from Wilkesboro is equally good to ride. The route from Raleigh to Wilkeboro is optional. I prefer 64 over I40
Saxapahaw has a nice river and a mini market and a brewery. Its a great ride and place but expect a lot of motorcycles and cars on the weekends
Ride to the beautiful NC Railway Museum via equally beautiful backroads and then NC 42 and back via Tiger Resuce
Ride back roads all the way to Yanceville NC via Badgett Sisters Parkway
Beautiful route via Tiger Rescue and Liberty to Asheboro and back via 902
