    Going to Iron Horse in Stecoah October 19 for a few days. There will be 8-10 of us. Looking for great routes. We've ridden the dragon and cherohala many times but certainly don't mind including them. 250-300 miles is great. Low traffic. Arrive Thursday so will be there Friday and Saturday.

    Don't mind a little 'easy to medium' dirt. We're competent but not aggressive on dirt. Love to have one mixed and one street only, I can handle the gps stuff so just looking for suggestions. Love to find something new.

    Suggestions welcome.

    The dragon and Cherohala of course.
    Reliance Road (315) near Tellico Planes. (west end of the Cherohala)
    Wayah road down to Franklin.
    There is a road in the middle of Wayah road called Otter Creek, which turns into Tellico Road. Great view from the top. Gravel.
    If you are there, take Fontana Road/Lakeview Drive north out of Bryson City. OK but short ride. Interesting story on the Road To Nowhere.
