Tail of the Dragon route suggestions

A few of my buddies and I are headed down to the Tail of the Dragon at the end of July. We're leaving from Stratford, Ontario, Canada and I am looking for suggestions of what route to take.

We're looking at possibly crossing at Niagara Falls and headed down the Blue Ridge Parkway, but that'll be a 3-day ride and I know one guy going is a little tighter for time then the rest of us.

We were hoping for a scenic route (not I-75) that's roughly 2-days ride. Might be too optimistic, but can't hurt to put it out there.

Suggestions?

Sorry no one has responded. Not at all familiar with north of the Gap other than the Blue Ridge Parkway, worth riding.

I've been told already that we should hit the Blue Ridge Parkway, so I think we're going to hit it on the way back.

At this point, we're looking at headed south on either US-62 or US-23, both run parallel to I-75 and would be far more scenic then taking the interstate the whole way.
