This is a great ride anytime of the year but especially in the fall. I left Knoxville at 12:30 est with my 11 year old son. We stopped at a few overlooks on the Skyway but my son mostly takes pictures while we were riding. This particular day the temperature was 71 degrees when we left Knoxville and was a brisk 52 degrees at the highest elevation. The Cherohala Skyway is spectacular with long sweeping curves and amazing views. This is a great prelude to The Tale of The Dragon.
