This is a familiar loop plotted from Deals Gap to Bald River Falls following the Cherohala Skyway and less travelled highway 360 and 72 back to the intersection of 129 and ended on a run of the Tail of the Dragon. Plenty of sites and places to stop. Side trip is to continue passed the falls along the river up to the state line where the road ends at a off road trail. Have Fun and Enjoy!!

This is one of the best rides in TN. Be sure to stop at several of the pull-offs on the Cherohala. The pictures at these spots are outstanding.

Me and my brother in law road this ride in april had a great time and took lots of photos of the bald river falls and from the skyway. I would however like to add that if you want to make the best of the ride try hitting foothills parkway on 128 on the way down from the draggon has great photo opps at the top and wont add that much more to the ride. and i also would like to add to plan 4-6 hours for this ride if you like to check out the overlooks and take photos.

remember to keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.
