Some of the best Motorcycling can be had in Western North Carolina! Our scenic drives are world renowned and this fact, coupled with our long warm seasons, makes this corner of the state a motorcycle lover's dream! We have a special guide devoted to our favorite drives in the area, but we've highlighted a few extra special Maggie Valley routes below.
The Land of the Waterfalls Loop Ride is a full day trip of beautiful sights and great times. A total of 175 miles (about five hours of riding time) loops around the Smoky Mountains and covers some of the best sites in the area. The loop begins near the southern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway and features rugged mountain scenes, long range views, and crashing rivers.
Blue Ridge Parkway
The Blue Ridge Parkway is an area treasure. Whether your driving the parkway, riding it, biking it, or camping on it, it offers a kind of magic rarely found. The most frequently used access point from Maggie Valley, NC is the entrance at Soco Gap. From this point, you can go south to the ends of the Parkway and find easy access to the Cherokee Indian Reservation. Heading north opens up the entire length of the Parkway. We recommend planning for some sunset views from any number of pull-offs along the way.
