Named for the route Triad football fans used to travel to football games at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Football Road showcases the beauty of North Carolina’s Piedmont between the Triad and Triangle metropolitan areas. Traveling along the byway, motorists will see small dairy farms, creeks, ponds, and bicyclists, since most of the route is designated as a recreational bicycle route.
