Can anyone tell me the route the original Watauga Road followed?

I have an ancestor who made a report on whether there could be a wagon road "from the [Abingdon, VA] Court House through the great Knobbs to intersect the Wata[u]ga Road opposite Phillips Mill. . . ."

Also, do any present-day roads more or less follow it?

Actually, I'd be interested in any info about its history.
