Cherohala Skyway


The Cherohala Skyway runs from Robbinsville, North Carolina (just south of the Tail of the Dragon) westward into Telico Plains, Tennessee.  Just over 50 miles of smooth, twisty highway along a ridge of the westernmost point of the Smokey Mountains.  The scenery is spectacular – especially with the fall colours just starting to come out.  The weather that day was sunny and clear and traffic was actually quite light, making for a nice enjoyable ride.

We rode the entire stretch and stopped a couple of times for pictures and to take in the view.  There isn’t much in Telico Plains, but we did stop at a small restaurant/bar for a bite to eat – my first taste of southern fried catfish and shrimp.
