Route description[edit]

The highway starts at the intersection of US 311 and Pine Hall Road and then continues north from the intersection. At Madison Road NC 772 bears left but shortly begins the curve toward the north east. The road makes another westerly turn at K-Fork Road but again turns back toward the north before reaching NC 704. NC 772 ends at NC 704 south of Sandy Ridge. The road is a rural two lane road throughout the entire length of the highway.[1]

History[edit]
