Weekend Ride- Cherohala/ Dragon Loop
Riding Cherohala/ Dragon loop was on my mind for few months now. I rode the Dragon this spring. So I decide that this weekend will be perfect to go before the leaves start falling. It was total 426 miles for me from Greenville, SC. Left home this morning at 7:00am and was back at 4:10pm. Weather was chilly in the morning and up in the mountains it never got above 60 anyways...atleast i was dressed for it. If anyone has never tried this loop, I'll recommend it to everyone. Speed limit on Cherohala is 45 MPH, but youi can easily ride it at 70 MPH, ofcourse dependent on the riding level.
Route I took from Greenville was
US25 to I-26 West to I-40 West then US 74 all the way to 143, 143 will become 165 in Tennesse, 306, the US 411 to County Hwy. 72, then 129 South, 28 south back into US 74 and then same way back home.
Here are some pictures along the way... it wasn't sunny and I was using my I-phone to take pics.
