Awesome Ride

5.0/ 5

Adam knows what he is talking about! The Tail of the Dragon is great for tight curves and banks and is a “right of passage” for motorcyclists. But the Cherohala Skyway is a beautiful ride with spectacular views!!! I rode it one day but would love to stay for a few days and take it all in. Lots to do from water activities to hiking.
