Max Patch Road is a gateway into many of the favorite trails within the Cherokee and Pisgah National Forests. The road is entirely gravel and does pass through residential areas. Its namesake, Max Patch, is a grassy summit cleared for pasture land during the 1800s. Today it's a popular hiking area. As a bonus, you will also pass by the quaint Max Patch Pond, supported by a nearby hatchery and filled with Brook Trout. Even though the road does drive through sections of public land, it is not well suited for camping.
