Highland Scenic Highway Motorcycle Ride Professional Review and Guide
"The 22-mile section of this ride stretching over Black Mountain on the Highland National Scenic Highway compares best with the Cherohala Skyway, featured in my first book, Motorcycle Adventures in the Southern Appalachians: North Georgia, East Tennessee, Western North Carolina. Little traffic, beautiful scenery, superb road conditions, and a top elevation of 4,545 ft. make this ribbon of asphalt what motorcycle crowds crave.
Getting to and from the Highway, you’ll ride through several nice towns and into the Monongahela National Forest. On the Scenic Highway commercial traffic is prohibited as you climb along the spine of Black Mountain. The views and fresh air are worth the trip! Points of interest: Monongahela National Forest, Cranberry Glades boardwalk, Scenic overlooks on Black Mountain, Black Bear Sanctuary."
