  • A definite must if your in the area, this road traverses through stunning and draw dropping scenery. The road is single track and in reasonable repair. Although there are barriers some of the drops...

  • It’s a gripping drive up and downhill. We loved the feeling and thrill involved. Please take care and be considerate while driving as the roads are narrow. If you are worried about cliffs and edges then again think few times before driving. The views are amazing. We were lucky as the sky was clear and we could spot Isle from here.
  • Stunning view and a must stop on the NC 500. The road up there is very narrow and i do see quite a few big campers along the way. They are just way too big for this part of the road and does create some choke points along the way
  • If you're debating whether to drive to the viewpoint, consider: you should be very comfortable as a driver of your smallish vehicle and comfortable with use of (small, few) Passing Places. There is 1 guardrail in 1 small portion, there are hairpin turns, pavement is quite rough and potholed, and you will be sharing the road with groups of motorcyclists who prefer to squeeze by rather than pass in official places, as well as cyclists who are very slow and difficult to pass. Our driver was a member of a 4 wheel drive club for years and found it a challenge. If you're still considering it, factor in the weather - it was sunny-rainy-cloudy on our day and when we got to the viewpoint it was so socked in we could barely see past the hood of our vehicle. Note: signs specifically state no motorhomes, and you would be insane to attempt the drive in one.
  • Fantastic experience. Just don’t be the numpty who ignores the signs and tries to do it towing a caravan. Yep, we met him yesterday. I think he’s still there on one of the hairpin bends.
  • Absolutely stunning views. Unfortunately people have used it as a toilet - if you need to do your thing, please take any toilet paper and waste with you! Doggy poo bags do the trick! It’s not difficult and it’ll stop ruining this beautiful place.
