Map and Directions to Mountain Horticultural Crops Research & Extension Center

DIRECTIONS: From I-40 in Asheville, take I-26 South (Exit 46).  Travel approximately 9 miles to Hwy 280 (Exit 40).  Follow Hwy 280 approximately 3.1 miles to NC 191 (Old Haywood Road).  Turn right into NC 191.  Travel approximately 1.3 miles, turn right onto Old Fanning Bridge Road (a barricade will indicate local traffic only). The Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center is approximately 3/4 mile on the left.

PLEASE NOTE-- At the present time, road construction at the east end of Old Fanning Bridge Road has made it necessary to change the routing instructions from Interstate 26 to the Research and Extension Center facility. These directions will be updated again when construction is finished and the road is re-opened to traffic. In addition, the name of Old Fanning Bridge Road from Highway 280 (Boylston Highway) to Westfeld Road has also changed. It is now known as Ferncliff Park Drive.
