Brushy Mountain Rd is now paved all the way from Braswell Mountain Rd to 278.

Now that its a done deal I wish they would pave Yorkville Pass south of 278. That would open up new options for road routes, especially for those coming down from the Dabbs Bridge Rd area.

As an aside, I had a conversation with a dog owner on north end of Brushy Mountain Rd after my ride today. She was reasonable, apologetic and said the dog must have gotten out without her knowledge. I've ridden past many times but have only seen it once before and it is very aggressive. I told her that I would have modified its behavior today but for the fact that I lost my pepper spray somewhere en route and that if I saw it again I would spray it and call the police. She understood and said that now that the road is paved and more vehicular traffic is expected they will be getting a better fence.

Watch out for it after the railroad tracks, at the top of the climb heading south.

Unless things have changed since I last rode Yorkville Pass I think it could be ridden on a road bike with size 25 or greater tires without too much discomfort.

Another gravel road all but gone.

Narroway Trail has been paved using the same Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) used on McPherson Church Rd.

The quality of the road is much better than McPherson Church however, nice and smooth. It is absolutely rideable on a road bike. I rode it 10/23/18.

It looks like it hasn't been rained on yet and so there is a light coating of sand and loose material on the top. Just be a little careful.
