    Folks this is not some sort of private ride. I'd like to meet up with anyone who willing to show this Florida boy around. I'm not much up for Black Diamond single track but forest service roads,etc. are just fine. B.T.W. We are in Riceville about 25 miles West from Tellico Plains.

    I live between Riceville and Tellico Plains but am a very inexperienced rider just getting close to going for a license. So, no help there. Hope you'll be back again, would love to ride around the forest anytime once I get up to snuff.

    Hope your having a great time and missed that electrical storm that just passed through.

    With all the work on the cottatge there was not much time for fun but we did get to Cades Cove. The place was a parking lot so we ducked onto Parsons Branch then to the Dragon and then home on the Cherohala. Nothing exciting except this was all done in my wifes 05 Toyota Corolla! She hung on for dear life and said a few prayers as I careened around the corners,splashed through the streams and blasted up the rutted uphills. Then on to the Dragon where I had several cars pull over to let us by. After have a burger and buying a tag frame at the Dragon store ( The Corolla deserved it) it was on to the Cherohala. At this point my wife was calm as I hit 35MPH corners at 60. She even took a nap. Not a bad day even though it was done in a cage.

    We were down there the beginning of June. Rode up to Cades Cove


    Beautiful, except it was a freakin' parking lot!!!


    Are you kidding me??



    Ahhh...that's better!











    8 Miles, 9 water crossings on Parson Branch Rd.

    Jumped on the Dragon from there...first to Deal's Gap for some BBQ, then back. Got some photos somewhere courtesy of Killboy...Tw's on the Dragon.
    Then over Happy Valley road and back to Townsend where we were camping.

    PS. There's a couple of spots that would have been a REAL adventure in the Corrolla!

Wait..Stop!! I saw a leaf fall. Don't get me wrong it's a very pretty place and the guy who runs the mill tour rides a farkled Dub.
