We are going to North Carolina next weekend. Curious about the location that one is most likely able to see bears?
I've heard of Cataloochee. Is that the area that one must travel on a curvy gravel road to reach the destination?
Cataloochee is always worth a trip, to me. The entrance is Cove Creek Rd where 275 meets I-40. From Waynesville, take 276/19 toward Maggie Valley. Turn right when 276 separates from 19 at the Maggie Valley city limits. Just before you get to I-40, Cove Creek Rd is on your left.
You're right; the road is gravel much of the way, and it's narrow in places. Just drive slow, and try not to get caught in the dark.
Enjoy your trip!
