The focus of 100 Great Motorcycle Rides in the Southern Blue Ridge is the south end of the Appalachian Mountains which subside in Northeast Georgia. This map takes you from the south end of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Cherokee, North Carolina, to Fairmont, Jasper, and Talking Rock in Georgia. It includes the Cherohala Skyway in North Carolina and Tennessee but NOT the Tail of the Dragon in North Carolina / Tennessee (just a small portion of the Dragon is shown, see map 100 Great Motorcycle Rides in the Smoky Mountains for full coverage of the Smoky Mountain area).
The top half of the map covers Tennessee and North Carolina south of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the bottom half of the map details the wealth of great rides in Georgia and clips a small section of South Carolina. Blairsville, Suches, Hiawassee and Murphy are all near the center of the map. This is a rich riding area with some of the best loved rides in the Southeast including the Cherohala Skyway, the numerous waterfalls near Highlands, NC, and the popular rides around the motorcycle mecca of Suches and the popular tourist town of Helen. I've included an inset map of the famous Gauntlet Motorcycle Route, a must-do ride in the area.
You'll also find numerous little known roads that most people miss when visiting the area. The best roads are highlighted red and the best ways to connect them together are highlighted in blue to help you stay on the best rides all the time. Motorcycle friendly destinations are shown, as well as out-of-the-way gas stations, and I've added numerous scenic overlooks so you don't miss out on the great views.
The map measures 24 x 36 inches and folds down to standard road map size. It is printed on durable waterproof color-fast material that will last for years of use. The back side of the map lists the roads and brief descriptions of them to help you choose what best suits your desires. There is also a list of roadside waterfalls. Additionally there are inset maps of the larger towns to help you navigate through or around them.

A limited number of this map is available unfolded (flat) for mounting on your wall which are shipped rolled, and require Priority Mail Shipping with an additional $5.99 fee (added to price), bringing the total for shipping on a flat map to $6.98.
