Gearing Up for Fall Rides on BRP


Fall is just around the corner and if you are planning a trip through the mountains of Western North Carolina, don’t miss the Diamondback Motorcycle and Sportscar Route as it winds from Marion, NC to the Parkway at Milepost 334. Over 190 curves in a fun and fast 12-mile ride climbing 2000 feet and dropping 10 to 15 degrees in temperature.


At the top of the route is The Switzerland Inn and the Diamondback Motorcycle Lodge – a fun place for groups to “camp” without camping inconveniences. The Lodge features 8 comfortable rooms with common areas and covered motorcycle parking.

The Switzerland Inn has spacious, newly renovated rooms and suites (many with spectacular mountain-valley views) plus two patio bars and the full service Chalet Restaurant. The Chalet Restaurant serves gourmet favorites and classic breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.

Shopping at Little Switzerland Trading Company, gathering with friends at the Fowl Play Pub or soaking away the evening in one of the hot tubs round out a trip on the Diamondback – NC 226A.
