On Wednesday, October 12th, we took a Day Ride.
Our destination was Clingman’s Dome in the Smoky Mountains.
Pamo kicks off the day in this short video:
We left our home at 10:15am. It was cool around 50 degrees with beautiful blue skies.
We rode south on Chapman Highway to Seymour where we stopped to fuel up and eat a quick breakfast. After breakfast we continued south on Chapman Highway to Sevierville where we took the Parkway through Pigeon Forge. We then took the Gatlinburg bypass to the entrance to the Smoky Mountains on 441.
We rode just past Newfound Gap, then took the exit to Clingman’s Dome- the highest point in Tennessee at 6643 feet.
Getting to Clingman’s Dome was slow going as the traffic was heavy with fellow tourists and sightseers.
We finally got back to our bikes and again it was slow going. When we reached 441 the traffic thinned out a bit.
Once we reached Townsend, we continued through Maryville and on back into Knoxville. We got back home at 5:45pm and our total mileage was 143 miles.
