Friday 4/17 @ 11:30 AM Bridal Veil Falls Cruise to Highlands, NC.
After the Safety meeting and Shirt/RBQ hand out we’ll be heading out. We’ll be heading first to Robbinsville to gas up then cutting through the Nantahala National forest on our way to the town of Highlands. This is basically an all day event featuring some of the best driving & scenic roads in the state. We’ll stop for lunch in Highlands and there are a bunch of options and other shopping if that’s your thing. Then we’ll loop back around and eventually end up back at the resort.
Saturday 4/18 @ 1:30 PM Cherohala Skyway Cruise
After the Sound Off and Dragon Parade we’ll be doing one of the most famous loops in the area, the Cherohala Skyway. More info here.
This is one of the cooler roads we think you’ll ever see and eventually loop back into TN and then back to the resort via the Dragon.
Again, please feel free to print out this map and take a peek before the event so you have a general idea of where we are headed, especially if for some reason you get separated. Note that Google maps states this is about a 4 hour loop not taking into account any stops for gas. This means there isn’t a whole lot of time to mill around after the sound off in order to get back in time for the RBQ!
