Written Directions

Start in Walhalla, SC and head north on route 28, cross the SC/GA border, stay on route 28, cross the GA/NC border, and head into Highlands, NC (then end point).

Scenery

Beautiful National Forest scenery. Mountains, Rivers and Waterfalls ... a great sampling of 3 states in a nice 30 mile run! Travels through the Sumter National Forest and later Nantahala National Forest.

Drive Enjoyment

Plenty of tight curves as well as some long sweepers, nice transitions. For the pavement, the majority of the road is in good shape. Once in the forest area you can twist the throttle and drag your knees.

Tourism Opportunities

Not a lot between Walhalla and Highlands, so, fill up before you leave Walhalla. No restaurants or other facilities for miles.

I can't describe how awesome this ride is. Way better than The Dragon or the Cherohala Skyway even! Fantastic roads, great curves, beautiful scenery & not a lot of traffic! Do yourself a favor and hit the Moonshiner 28, as this ride is known, and have a blast!

Any riding off the Interstate system through the Smokies is beautiful. The one thing I would do different is ship my golf clubs to Highlands as there are some of the most beautiful golf courses in those hills around Highlands and Cashiers. Would be the ultimate bike trip to stop for a few days and golf, jump back on the bike and head to south, Augusta, Savannah???
