Similar to US 221 in the area, NC 88 goes an east-west route along creeks and valleys in Alleghany, Ashe, and Watauga counties. Oddly, you wouldn't know you were on it unless you read the map, it has a habbit of not having any highway signs along the route. Also, one of the least maintain roads from Jefferson to the state line.
