I'm headed up that way at the end of the month for a stay at Ironhorse M/C Lodge just outside of Robbinsville.
I skirted the Smokies twice between Oct 2010 and June 2011 while on a National Parks Tour Ironbutt quest. Spent one night in SMNP but I pretty much just blazed through. This trip will be 4 days just exploring the old moonshiner "thunder roads" and wearing rubber off of the sides of my tires!

I was there week before last. 1409 miles to Sky Line Drive, down the Blue Ridge Parkway to Cherokee, Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Parkway and back.
Saw a few wild turkeys, a BIG rattlesnake, several deer encounters (be careful), but didn't see any bears until I was about 20 miles west of Richmond. Big guy ran down the bank and across the road in front of us. Good thing I didn't hit him. I would have had a hard time convincing him it was his fault!

|07Roadie||Been there 3 times in the last two years, hoping to make it up there this year. We are going to wait till it is cooler and hopefully catch the seasonal changes, went last year in july, it was hot! Love staying in robbinsville hotel for bikes, lotsa parking spots, couple of good little breakfast dinner spots in town, and they have a group of cloggers on friday nights i believe it was, in the square uptown, that was a neat little experience. We actually drove around all over the area from robbinsville, north, south, east and west, tons of great rides and lots of sights to see.|
