Brushy Mountain

Where is Brushy Mountain? How do you get there from Concord/Huntersville/Mooresville?? I saw signs for it off of the 421 and saw a Brushy Mountain Motorcycle dealership, but haven't found it on a map.

Come on guys, spill the beans. Where is it and what's it like to ride?

Yeah, I know...the Gap is such a mess I won't even go there right now. It was fun a few years ago.
Anyway, I found it (brushy mtn) on my gazetteer. I'll ask which specific roads I should hit on a Wed night.

I'd really rather SHOW you.... but since I'm still under the shackles at home for a longer ride, It's pretty simple:

take I-77 N to exit 42 (Troutman). left off exit and go through "downtown" troutman about 3 or 4 miles and you'll see old mountain rd off to the left. Take that and go all the way up and cross over I-40, then route 64, and route 90.
Follow across route 90 on the same road and you'll hit the intersection with sulpher springs road after about a mile. take a left there and go on that for a few miles of nice twisty warmup road that is sulpher springs rd, till you see brushy mountain rd off to the left. take a left there and you're on your own. I don't know the name of the rd at the bottom of the mountain to take you to Taylorsville, but if you have a map or GPS you'll find it. If you have a gas pig like me, you'll want to make sure you got enough gas for a few runs.

Secret schmecret..... Virtually everyone from this board in the charlotte area that's been around with the group rode it at least once. I would hope that someone would get up there and be adventurous and find another kick ass road up there since one has to exist.

I've been doing some riding in the area, and I may have spotted a few new routes. I need to do some more exploring, and I will let you know what I find....

Ridden It?

I don't know if I'd say I've ridden it, but I can assure you that the ditches out there are full of poison ivy, so I'd recommend sticking to the road.......
