    I will be down in Murphy from Wednesday (arriving) through Sunday (leaving). I plan on doing a Dragon and Cherohala loop on Thursday if anyone is interested. I'd love to meet up with you guys for that if you are planning on that ride at all. To get to the center of Robbinsville, the map says it will take me 2 hours (roughly) even though it is only 46 miles. Let me know if anyone is interested, we can meet at one of the gas stations in the area, maybe the one just outside Robbinsville to the northwest.

    if it takes you 2 hours to go from Murphy to Robbinsville-you are pushing the bike and not riding it LOL. If I remember correctly though, your campground is north/northwest of Murphy and you would have to ride thru all those traffic lights in Murphy....Only 1 traffic light in Andrews (maybe 2 now)-once you turn onto US129 from US19/US74, it is only like 20 minutes of riding (at speed limit)... I will be riding in on Thursday, tend to get at Deal's gap around noonish (if I take Interstate to Knoxville)....

    Oh, I know. It never took me that long previously. I was going by the estimate of the map. It's 46 miles to the gas station just outside of Robbinsville from Crawford's.

    I am going to do the Dragon and Cherohala on Thursday, so I am not fighting crowds Friday or Saturday. I'll be headed down Wednesday morning, looking to arrive around 4PM or so.

    They are the maps talked about in the first post of this thread. AmericaRidesMaps.com.
    $45 this knowledge is well worth it in my thinking.

    I just purchased the three map series Best Unpaved Roads. Also have the Butler maps of the region.
