My wife and I have the envious time coming up where the kids are going to "camp grandma" for a week this summer. The wife and I thought about doing some active vacationing without the tykes during this time. She is not a strong rider, but is ok on the bike. So road riding may not be the most comfortable to her. Living here in the DC area and close to the W&OD we are a bit spoiled to path riding. The camp will be in western NC, so ideally, we would stay somewhat close them them for sake of minimizing windshield time.
Is there any good places to consider in the eastern TN, anywhere NC/SC that could provide good "path like" riding that would be fun or have good views?
