I appreciate your thoroughness. Good Job
Steve and I will see you tomorrow.
Thinking about coming through the Dragon and then jump on Joyce Kilmer Road to the "forest service road 81" to the Skyway. Then to the Farmhouse B&B. About 165 miles and 5 hours. Leaving early to enjoy the day.
Gives us a mix.
Any suggestions to add to the route would be appreciated.
Stay on the gravel roads when you get to Stratton Meadow underpass.. you'll end up on North River Road then to River Road a ways up the road from Bald River Falls. Better than the Skyway IMO..
Ok. Sounds good. Thanks.
OH, and just below the Skyway on the TN side.. you'll come to a Y intersection. If you go to the right you'll head toward Tellico, but if you go left you'll go up to Whigg's Meadow, a bald with a pretty nice view. Not that far, maybe a couple miles, but maybe rough in a spot or two. If you are using GPS, the road database might show a road going all the way down to River Road, almost near Green Cove. It's closed, hasn't been open for years, looks mostly overgrown now, might be hikable is all.
Thanks Kyle for putting on a great ride today. Sorry I cut your ride short by hitting that rock and flattening my rear tire, and not having the correct axle wrench. I really wanted to make it over to Witt Rd, but we'll catch that next time.
Tony asked earlier about GPS.. guess I have to backtrack and offer a new view of the Garmin Zumo 350LM (and the other Zumo 3x0 series). Recently Garmin updated the software to allow the import, reading, and saving of gpx track files. HOLY CRAP! that improves my feeling about this GPS about 500%, or more. There musta been a lot more people than me sending hate mail to Garmin for that lack of functionality, and they listened so kudos to them. Not sure about the 590 version, but would assume it's the same as the 300 series now too (prolly easy enuff to check the update log online).
We stayed at the farmhouse Sunday night and really enjoyed it. This is so much better than a motel as you have the freedom of moving about the house instead of a motel room. The farmhouse is a very cool old house with lots of character. Kyle and I talked motorcycles for a while and I was surprised at how much he knew about the old bikes like I was riding when I was much younger. He and his wife are very good hosts and we plan to return in a few weeks to see the fall colors. BTW Kyle, thanks for the tip about the zumo, I will plan on getting one.
Tony in Bon Aqua, Tn
My wife & I stayed with Laura & Kyle on Sunday eve.
We had a nice welcome, great room and a good friendly atmosphere.
Kyle had some great ideas on roads in the area, both pavement and gravel.
We had a nice stay and would highly recommend staying with them.
Bob & Lisa.
Great information on the roads of this area. Thanks,
I can't wait to follow you around next week...as long as we don't freeze our nuts off! Well....Hell! I don't need no nuts anyway!!!
Snowbird Loop----less than 500 point tracks.
Starr Loop------less than 500 track points.
Your so welcome.
Thank you for all the hard work of creating all the GPS files. I am heading up to Tellico plains next week and am bringing both street and dirt bike.
Could you recommend your favorite super moto loops and off road routes?
I may not have time to ride them all as the wife and two dogs will be along with me as well.
Thanks in advance
Thank you will do. Its a pain finding a place that will allow dogs.
Either of the SM loop is a hoot, maybe I like the Starr Mtn one just a little bit more? For off-road I kinda like the the stuff in the TAT-1 and TAT-2 tracks (over in the Tellico Adventure Trail planning thread) the best, but ALL of them have sections I love too. Hard to pick "favorites" really, it's just all good fun.
And yes, we are more than dog friendly, as long as your dogs are friendly and behaved anyway..
