Blue Ridge is about 3-31/2 hours one way from PF.

The weather is hard to predict but I would definitely have something light weight and a good jacket also. As far as Blue Ridge...if you are speaking of the Blue Ridge Parkway, You will travel on Newfound Gap Road over the mountain into Cherokee, NC. Right before you enter Cherokee, Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is on the left. You should, by all means, be able to reach the parkway way before 3 hours and a half. When you leave PF traveling toward Gatlinburg, watch for the Gatlinburg Bypass on the right. This will take you directly up the mountain avoiding all the traffic thru Gatlinburg. Guessing...I would think you could be there within an hour to hour and half, depending on the traffic up the mountain.
