For a beautiful perspective, travel the 41-mile Cherohala Skyway that connects Hwy 143 from Robbinsville to Hwy 165 in Tellico Plains, TN. Called a “mini-Blue Ridge Parkway,” it follows the crest of the Unicoi Mtns. in the Cherokee and Nantahala National Forests, thus the name. Highest point 5,390 ft. Visitors can enjoy a picnic above the clouds at one of the many overlooks or hop out of the car and venture out onto the Hooper Bald Trailhead for a 1/4 mile hike with outstanding, majestic views.
