This 78-mile loop posts signs for truckers which read, “5000 ft elevations, 15 mph curves, and 9% grades along this route.” Those warnings to commercial vehicle drivers might as well be an invitation to motorcyclists! This ride offers much to the visiting biker, including a motorcycle-only campground, the Cradle of Forestry Discovery Center, and superb views with little traffic. Points of interest: Views of Lake Logan, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the roadside pullout at Looking Glass Falls, the hike to Sliding Rock, the Cradle of Forestry Discovery Center (helicopter simulator, etc.), and the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground.
