A Drive Down North Carolina’s Loneliest Road Will Take You Miles And Miles Away From It All

How do we really escape? It can be a trip to the beach, reading a book, or even taking a long drive. I’ve always loved the saying, ‘The highway don’t judge if you’re alone’ and on some North Carolina roads it only adds to the experience to transport yourself miles away from reality. For 98 miles between Rosman and Murphy on US 64, the Waterfall Byway passes some of the most pristine and scenic falls in North Carolina.

You really can’t beat the beauty of this drive! Have you ever taken a journey through here?

Sure, it might be fall, but I think anytime of year is perfect for chasin’ waterfalls. Good news is, these 10 beautiful waterfalls require no hike.
