This ride is one of the classic loops for riders visiting the Smoky Mountains. You will be treated to awesome curves and stunning scenery. Either direction is great depending on whether you want to hit the Tail of the Dragon or the Cherohala Skyway first.

    I rode 80% of this loop and then threw in the Moonshiner 28 after the Tail of the Dragon for good measure.  Awesome riding and the Skyway was in great shape.  The only rough spots were on rt 360 and a couple spots on the dragon.  We were there the last week in April 2024 and had a great time on this ride.

    How were the road conditions at the time you RECENTLY rode?

    Very Good - minor imperfections
