The Federal Highway Administration highlights this national scenic byway’s “mile-high vistas and brilliant fall foliage.”

The Cherohala Skyway stretches for some 40 miles of paved, two-lane road between the towns of Robbinsville, North Carolina, and Tellico Plains, Tennessee. Along the way, the byway winds through two national forests for which it’s named, the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee and the Nantahala National Forest in North Carolina.

Leaves start turning color as early as September in higher elevations and continue through mid-November in lower elevations.

Autumn recreational opportunities along Cherohala Skyway include outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling and camping, thanks to moderate temperatures and little rainfall this time of year.
