That is what we would like to do do. Find a place and do day rides. Inexpensive lodging..too.

 

Thanks

We rode in eastern Tn this August. Townsend was our base. Many nice day rides without the slow traffic of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We did the Harley thng by riding the Tail of the Dragon. Nice ride, but too much hype and too many people. We rented a house in the mountains in Townsend for cheap. We spent 3 days there but could have easily spent a week.

If you like the dragon area your love Fontana Village, food drink and things to do when you are off the bike.

Do not go that way for the dragon but do do it, go and injoy all the other roads and if you are in Maggie Valley and need to overnight stay at the Addy Inn great people.

I spent two weeks in the Smokey Mountains in May 2011, 5 days we stayed in Maggie Valley. This is a great central location. Room rates are very reasonable. If you can make it over to Cashier, NC look for Bridal Falls. They paved the trail behind the small waterfall and you can ride your bike behind the waterfall. Great photo op.

Thank you. We made a reservation in Maggie Valley and will use that as a base to do day rides. Would be :COOL: to see the waterfalls though will add that to the plans.

Bridal Veil Falls is really cool, but it's closer to Highlands, NC than Cashiers, NC. On highway 64 just a few miles outside of Highlands. Dry falls is very near there as well and worth a visit. Highway 64/28 is, in my opinion, is probably the best motorcycle road in the eastern US. Much better than the Dragon without all the hype. Franklin/Cashiers/Highlands, NC to Wahalla, SC is an absolute awesome ride.

I always approached from the Brevard side, so you may be right. I agree Hwy 64 is a great ride. I also enjoy Hwy 276, great waterfalls next to the road and this also offers some challenges along the way. No deals gap, but it offers some great views and twisties.

 

Last May was my first experience on the Wing in the Mountains.

I think 276 is the one that goes past the place you can slide down the rocks, it is $1 and it is great on a hot day.

Yep, the place is called "Sliding Rock", oddly enough. If you stop there to slide, don't wear a normal bathing suit, wear cut off jeans, or you'll end up sliding bare assed in two or three passes!:surprised: We used to go there as kids all the time. Lots of fun, but that's some cold water.:cold:

Was there about 4 years ago. Stayed in Gatlinburg, won't do that again, way too crowded and too much traffic.

Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherohola Skyway are both cool. If you do Tail of the Dragon, do it early in the week when it's not so crowded. I thought the Wheels through Time museum moved to Arizona, but if it's still in Maggie Valley it's a must see.
