Directions: start on 215 at Headwaters Outfitters and travel up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, after going under the overpass take an immediate left to access the Blue Ridge Parkway, take another left to go towards Asheville, drive until you come to 276, take 276 down to Brevard. Some of the major tourist attractions are located on 276. Consisting of the Cradle of Forestry, Sliding Rock, Fish Hatchery, and Looking Glass Falls.
