Description:
A strenuous ride from the northern entrance of Skyline Drive to Big Meadows. Should be "out and back", but could not get that option to function properly, 23 Aug 2007. This better shows elevation gain anyway. Total distance of out and back is approx. 102miles. If you're not trained for climbing and distance, do not attempt this ride. I note the "lesser version" is posted also, this from Dickey Ridge parking.
