On May 30, 2015. We will meet at Sweetwater Exit 60 off 75 at the Burger King at 160 New Highway 68 at 11am. We will then leave Burger King Parking lot at 11:15am. We will then proceed to Tellico Plains, TN and pick up lunch at Tellico Beach Drive-In or Tellico Kats Deli. Then drive up to Bald River Falls. We can picnic there at one of the many overlooks. There are tables and bathrooms at each. This drive will take approximately 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
If we would then like to head up the Cherohala Skyway National Scenic Byway we could drive as far as we'd like. But we can make that decision after lunch. This will be a fun and slow drive. Should we choose to continue we can go into North Carolina into the Nantahala National Forest on 143 E. Mind you this is approx 3 more hours to the state line but that will be discussed, if we want to continue and for how far we choose.In short this can be a 2 hour drive or an all day drive. If you would rather bring your own lunch please do so. There are many overlooks and places we will stop and get out. So wear your tennis shoes and bring some flip-flops of you wanna get in the water! I will be sending out an email with more details.
