Weekly Scenic Drive: River Road

When leaving Tellico Plains, Tn, on the Cherohala Skyway you travel along the south side of the Tellico river. Not far along the river crosses the road and continues south. The Cherohala continues eastward. if you would like to follow the river and see Bald River falls you must take the River road south. It follows the river to the falls and the campground. Gorgeous rural backroad with little traffic means ease of pull off to enjoy the spectacular scenery.

As always click the photo to see it largerOnce you cross the bridge, where Bald river joins the Tellico you will take the next left on North River road to go back out to NC 143 the Cherohala. It too follows beside the river with primitive campgrounds and picnic areas.We stopped for lunch and this is where I took my shoes and socks off and waded out for photos. YES!!!!!! it was cold.It is a wonderful drive and well worth the side trip.
