Jay........The Rally is in a community called "Stecoah", if that is what you are referring to in your title. Make sure your input "Stecoah" into your GPS, not Stagecoach......if there is a place in NC (I did not look). You may need to punch in "Robbinsville" instead of Stecoah.......???
Over 100 Attendees at the May 2019......already planning it for 2020!!

Last time I was up there my Garmin got me close but not to the Iron Horse. I had to use the printed directions (that I had printed before I left as a back up) to get me that last mile or two to the Iron Horse. Just a heads up.

1755 Lower Stecoah Rd, Robbinsville, NC 28771 comes right up on Google Maps. I would think Garmin would work with the address as well.

Planning to leave Thursday morning as well. From Mississauga. You've got e-mail. Don't feel offended by any means by my questions.

Thumbs up Buttinsky here ...

If you ask Google for directions
FROM Toronto ON
TO Robbinsville NC
You get 401 and I-75 to Knoxville TN.
I think there is no excuse for using that route,
unless you have 18 wheels per vehicle.

If you ask Google for directions
FROM Toronto ON
VIA Waynesboro VA (the South End of the Skyline Drive)
TO Robbinsville NC
and investigate some scenic routes, for example the Blue Ridge Parkway,
you will add maybe 300 kilometers to the journey, one way, and you may
enjoy the ride a whole lot.

Virginia is full of fantastic roads, and the people who drive cars on the
twisty passages generally know what they are doing. I rode some of
NC & VA in April, on my way to Barrie, and they were lovely to ride.
You will see lots of spring flowers, whatever route you take.

I rode US-219 from Bradford PA north to Buffalo, and it was a treat.
(I know, that little link is a tiny part of your ride, but please know that
it is easy to get to US-219 from the Peace Bridge; it is exit 54, the
last exit before you need to pick up a toll ticket on the NY Thruway.)

Enjoy your ride. I will not be there to meet you.
