Very new club members Al and Laura Converse have offered to lead a leisurely drive from Ingles in Flat Rock down to Saluda, then we take some back roads south of Saluda and loop back onto the 176 into Tryon for lunch at the Harper Pub and Eatery.

Drive route on Google Maps

View maps on your PC or Mac. They do not render correctly on a phone! (They tend to go back to the Google default routes)

Depart Ingles at 11:00am.

Notes from Al and Laura:
Al and Laura will be in the red BMW Z3 (their TR3 is being diligently worked on by Al) with the British flag on the rear antenna. We’ll try to park off to the side of the gas station at the N. Highland Lake Rd. Ingles/Flat Rock.

At Saluda we’ll turn right on Greenville Street (by the playground), continue on that road to Mine Mountain Road, West Fork Creek Rd., Fork Creek Road to Pearson’s Falls Rd. and rejoin 176 into Tryon. We’ll continue just past Morris the Horse (Tryon mascot), past Nina Simone Plaza and then a quick right turn immediately after crossing the train tracks to park in the lot opposite the shops on Trade Street. Harper Pub & Eatery is on the corner across from Morris.

After lunch, David and Kate will be happy to lead a return drive taking a different route back into Flat Rock:
