From Interstate 40- take the 447 Exit. Go left for 50 ft, turn left on Big Creek Road. Travel around 3 miles to Ridge Road. Turn left, travel slow, and enjoy.
This is a one-way mountainous road, very narrow, but beautiful.
I am lucky enough to live on Ridge Road. Each year the falls colors are exeptional. They are rich and brilliant every year especially on cloudy or rainy days.
