Cherohala Skyway

Wondering if anyone has taken this road trip? If so what are your thoughts? It was suggested to me but not sure if I would be up to the challenge yet or if it would be best to wait another year till I get more road time in before trying..

The Cherohala is not very challenging..kinda like riding the Blue Ridge Parkway...there are a lot of nice sweepers and no tight twisties...when you decide to do it make a stop at Bald River Falls...it's a little detour a few miles out of Tellico Plains. A good way to get to Tellico is take Hwy 360 out of Vonore.

The skyway is a easy ride. I hunt in that country a lot. I live on the nc end of the skyway, Robbinsville. Fun road, my grandfather helped build it.

I've got a trip planned with a buddy of mine to do the Blue Ridge, the Dragon and Cherohala next June.
I rode a section of the Blue Ridge and the Skyline Drive last year, and I'd point out
that any road is easy if you keep the speed down. The challenge comes when you turn up the wick enough to keep it interesting, but not so much as to be overly risky. (a big part of the challenge is to know where that line is) . I found the section of the Blue Ridge wouth of Waynesboro, Va to be quite entertaining on the GS.

I rode through Robbinsville last May. Stayed at a hotel in Andrews for a Rebel rally. They are talking about have the next rally at Ashville, maybe this year.

Duckster, the best time to ride the Dragon is in the morning. By 11:00 AM there is enough traffic on the road already. There are plenty of pull offs for the slower bikes to pull over, but they seldom do. Same with the cars. And since your down there, you have to visit Wheels Through Time Museum! You won't be disappointed, plenty to see.

The times I have tried to take it, it has rained so I have not taken it yet but want to very badly. I will try to go when it warms up a little.
