This would explain the extra hits I have been getting in regards to this segment of old US 70.
A 3.6 segment of former US 70 in McDowell County, North Carolina has recently been rededicated as part of the Point Lookout Trail. A hike and bike greenway through the mountains and to Royal Gorge. NCDOT is currently in the process of paving the old concrete road with a 10 foot wide ribbon of asphalt to make this a multi-use trail.
Dave Filpus and I hiked this trail last fall, and it's great to see that this old road has been preserved for the enjoyment of all for years to come.
