It is 60 rugged miles to Cherokee, and you had better be well prepared. Facilities are scarce in these parts. You will be cycling along Pisgah Ridge to the Great Balsams. You will reach the highest point on both Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway at Richland Balsam, elevation 6,053 feet. Stop here and take it all in. You have truly come far if you have cycled from Front Royal to this point. It is a major achievement to get here from Cherokee or Asheville.
