What is/was the Boone Trail Highway?


A few weekends ago I took some photos in Hillsborough, NC - and came across a unique historical marker that included a tablet for the Boone Trail Highway.  I dug a little deeper in finding information about the highway - and learned that this was an Auto-Trail era route promoting 'Good Roads' by a man from Mocksville, NC named Joseph Hampton Rich.

Unlike other Auto-Trail era routes, there are a number of remaining markers left throughout the country.

Does anyone else know more about the Boone Trail Highway in their neck of the woods?

Yep. I've been on it a couple times. It's fun to ride and you should try it :) :D :-D
