    Default Cherohala Skyway

    Just a couple of pics for now. Yesterday my route took me along the Ocoee River and on county road 30 through Reliance. The weather was great and traffic was light. Never had anyone in front or behind me on the Skyway.

    Great roads. The Cherohala is a favorite for sure.

    30/315 thru Reliance is really nice, since they repaved it.

    I was discovering some new roads in N. Ga. yesterday.

    Can you share them with us carpet scrapers that come up there occasionally? TIA!!!
    Is it really true that the yellow ones are faster, get better mileage, etc, etc, etc?

    I'm always looking for new roads to discover. Just recently rode Henderson Mountain Rd and Salacoa Rd for the first time.

    The Skyway is such a blast to ride. I always wondered what it would look like if I stopped at one of the overlooks, LOL. Thanks for sharing. Hoping to ride it again, in May.
