I stumbled upon this 8 mile section of road while planning my latest trip down to North Carolina, and became almost mesmerized by it. The history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park really intrigues me, and the so called Road to Nowhere is a very interesting footnote. The road has been a bone of contention between the National Park Service and some Swain County, NC residents since the 40's, and the issue was only resolved recently. It's done and dusted. The road will not be completed, and Swain county will receive some millions of $$ instead. If interested, check out www.gribblenation.com/nclost/roads/nowhere.html A short history and explanation can be found there.
