I am in the process of planning a ride for the end of June or first part of July.
Leaving the foothills of SC going up thru NC into Pigeon ForgeTN on to Nashville then Memphis and then into Kentucky, Mississippi,Alabama,and Flordia.
I have noticed in my planning there is a Blue Grass Parkway in Kentucky not sure what if any part of it I could include in my trip and is it worth it.
Also any places of interest along these states you know of would be a great help an planning the ride. Plan to be out about 9 days. Really enjoy the backroad Blue Ridge Parkway type roads.

jimmy,
enjoy the trip.
Good road would be the Cherohala Skyway; runs from Robbinsville, NC., to Tellico Plains, TN. Far southwest area of NC, near Great Smoky Mtns. Park. Nice ride from there into Knoxville. If in the area on a weekday, try Deal's Gap ( 318 curves in 11 miles) US129. Plenty of nice roads there and in North Ga.

Thanks for the imfo. I have rode both of those and the Nantahala Gorge on a trip I took last year to the National HOG rally in Chattanooga. Loved the Cherohala Skyway and the Nantahala Gorge. Enjoyed the Deals Gap but was a little disapointed in it.

I live in georgetown ky just N. of lexington and the bluegrass parkway is nothing to go out of your way to see. it is a 77 mile road that connects lexington to elizabethtown pretty much farmland and average speed is 75 or more if you don't get caught.The same with the western ky parkway but longer.

Unfortunatly, the Bluegrass Parkway has nothing in common with the Blue Ridge Parkway other than the fact that they both end in the word Parkway.

@gree: Getting there from here is all the fun, across I-64 through West Virginny, or any of the other east west routes!!!
