This is a relaxing ride around South Mountain NC. This ride will send you north along 226 which you can enjoy the west side of the mountain views. You will turn east on to 70 in Marion where you will pick up 126 on your left. 126 will cross the Catawba River and follow along the James Lake, all this is happening in the Pisgah National Forest along 126. Word of advice, before turning on to 126 make sure you have gas. I did not notice any along this part of the route. This road has some nice sweeping turns along the whole route which was enjoyable on a full dresser. Once you get in to Morganton you will head south on 18 ( NC scenic byway) along the east side fo the mountain. Turn right on to 10 heading west will complete the loop around the mountain.
