Ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway by car or road bike. If you road bike it is very very demanding.

I love witnessing the amazing Parkway scenery on this section, completing some of the spectacular trails like Craggy Gardens/Craggy Pinnacle and Mt. Pisgah, and then ending the day exploring wonderful Asheville!

Drove through this section with a thunderstorm coming over the mountain, turning the visibility to very low. It was exciting.

Incredible beauty and lots of views. I would like to see it again in the fall.
