Maggie Valley, North Carolina
Nestled in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, the town of Maggie Valley has everything a motorcycle enthusiast could want. Sitting at the heart of the greatest collection of motorcycle rides in the nation, Maggie Valley boasts many riding routes for all types of riders and skill levels with adventure waiting around every curve.
The Maggie Valley Shamrock Tour will take place in early 2023. The winner will get to work with the RoadRUNNER team as we create a custom tour to suit their favorite riding style and interests. There's a lot to see, do, and ride near Maggie Valley. Here’s a small sample of what this area has to offer.
Some of the best mountain views in the U.S. are along the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the many great places for a joy ride in the North Carolinian Smokies. For a thrilling trail of switchbacks, cruise along the Bobarosa Saloon Run or the Copperhead Loop. If you’re looking for a less crowded route, hit Thunder Road for scenic views that’ll still give you the rush of adrenaline and mountain air.
A long ride through the Appalachian countryside can work up a serious appetite. Refuel your tastebuds with a hearty meal at rider-friendly restaurants tucked along Soco Road. Take a pit stop at places like Brickhouse Burgers & Pizza. Cool down with a couple of cold brews along the creek at BearWaters Brewing Company. No matter what you’re craving, Maggie Valley has places to eat that’ll drive you and your crew wild.
