Going to Boone

We are planning a trip from Albany, Ga. to Boone NC. and would like a route that is easiest pulling a travel trailer. Looks like the best route may be to go all the way thru Clayton, Ga. into NC and take the Blueridge Parkway. The other route takes us on I-85 into NC and then head north up the mountain.

I would appreciate any advice from a seasoned rv,er about this. Please e-mail me ----phil_smith@bellsouth.net

Thanks

You will be taking the long but visually beautiful route if you go Blue Ridge. The climb up from Asheville to Mt Mitchel will tax your unit and fuel. Only climb up 321 from Gastonia is short with same scenery

If I recall the BlueRidge Parkway has some tunnels . I'm not sure about the height and clearance but the "archway" design could get really tricky, really quick if you get too far to the right. You can try going through Clayton Ga stay on 441 to Waynesville NC and take I-40 east to Hickory and 321 north to Boone. You may want to get a GPS for RVs. TomTom and Garmin has one. I use the TomTom. BTW, I live in Columbus Ga.
