The Snake?
« on: March 11, 2020, 09:47:39 AM »
Has anyone ridden the road called the snake? A buddy and I found it a couple of years ago on a ride, I can’t seem to locate it now...any help would be greatly appreciated  it’s located near the blue ridge parkway.

Rode it before it had a name ;)   Like Deal's Gap it can be over run on the weekends with hooligans and posers. I can remember 10 years ago or more at Tri-Star Galen Diehl was recommending against riding there if you had anything that might make your bike a target for LEOs because they were starting to spend a lot of time there righting citations to keep things in order.

We all need to remember, these are public roads with others on them, not a road closed off for our entertainment.
