About This Adventure

Take a latest-model Polaris Slingshot on a gorgeous winding road that the Discovery Channel named one of the top 10 motorcycle rides in North America. The Cherohala Skyway is North Carolina’s most expensive scenic highway, carrying a price tag of $100 million when it was completed in 1996. The road winds up and over 5,400-foot mountains for 18 miles in North Carolina before descending another 23 miles in Tennessee.  Despite this accolade, this is still one the nation’s best kept secrets! Get ready for ridge after ridge of forested mountainsides with sweeping peaks-and-valleys views as far as the eyes can see. Along the way, you can take frequent pit stops that the abundant and unobstructed scenic overlooks around every corner. Wear your hiking boots to take advantage of the numerous hiking trails along the route and be sure to stop and see several refreshing waterfalls.  

This itinerary is 43 miles one way. Be sure to stop for food/gas before or after your ride since there are no stops along the way.
