We do this ride as often as we can when we are up in that area every June. It is a nice, winding road, two-lane road with lots of overlooks to see the beauty below. At the peak, it is about 4,500 ft and can be quite a bit cooler than the valley. It is an enjoyable ride whether you are on a motorcycle or in a car and I would recommend it!

We started out in Maggie Valley NC and made our way over to Cherohala Skyway. What a beautiful ride on a motorcycle. Had never ridden this road before. Started in Robbinsville NC and ended in Tallico Plains TN. A must do if you are out riding your bike.

This incredible driving experience is comparable to the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are frequent pull offs, many with picnic tables. One has put toilets. That one is about halfway over. Good interpretive signs. Views are incredible. Elevation goes from 2500 to over 5000. Be aware that many motorcycles use this road and many by no means respect the 45 mph speed limit. They expect you to pull over at the pullouts & May become quite impatient & pass vehicles that are obeying the law. Be careful out there.

Did this run two days in a row. Once in the rain and once in the sun. A little tricky in the rain with compromised vision and slick roads, very beautiful in the sun. Let’s you out in Telico Plains for lunch and then a quick ride back to Gatlinburg! Can be done the same day you do the Tail of the Dragon! Enjoy!
