Join us on a 180 mile fall color ride to Mt. Mitchell with a stop at secluded Roaring Fork Falls after a hearty breakfast buffet at AJ's Family Steakhouse. Come early because it's kick stands up a 9 AM and a ride up the mountain at your own pace. We will meet up just off 183 and get on the BRP for a short cut to Hwy. 221 and 3 mile road. There are several gas stops possible along the 120 miles to Roaring Fork, Mt. Mitchell and Spruce Pine (lunch at the Mountain View Restaurant). From there it is 60 miles of overlook views to Lenoir and the end of the ride.
You may want to bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes for the waterfall (a half mile easy walk) and Mt. Mitchell.
The date can be changed to accommodate fall color and weather.
