We started at Asheville after visiting the Information center. They have a wonderful film that shows how this Parkway was built. The mountains were fantastic. We went to Mt. Mitchell, the highest mountain this side of the Mississippi. Overlooks give you time to take pictures and enjoy the view. No stop signs, no traffic lights, no commercial vehicles or commercial signs. Official season starts in April but it was neat to see the mountains and the earth under the trees that the leaves had not come out yet. You never see that.
Hiking trails. Great for motorcycles. Even seen some bicycles!
