Google and Mapquest give the route on I26 via Ashville NC, but we prefer to keep away from interstates and cities/large towns.
Looking at a map would we be ok taking US78/178 to NC or is there a more scenic route. Also what - if anything - are must sees on the route.
At NC we would head for Cherokee then drive through Great Smokey National Park to Gatlinburg.
We are interested in wildlife and scenic beauty.
Any help/information would be greatly appreciated
