Go Topless Day With Muddy Buddys Jeep Club | Jeepism | Saturday, 20. May 2017

We will meet at JEEPISM 8205 TN -73 Townsend, TN 37882.
at 9:30am and wait for Muddy Buddys Jeep Club to arrive.
We will leave Jeepism no later than 10:30am

This year's Go Topless Day ride we will be taking a road less traveled, drive to Balsam Mountain via the Heintooga Ridge Road that starts at the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 458.2, just 11 miles from the south end of the Parkway. (Not to be confused with Black Balsam ****, 38 miles north on the Parkway.) For the first four miles of this paved, two-lane road, you are still in the Blue Ridge Parkway National Park boundaries, complete with some nice high-elevation overlooks looking down on the mountain ridges. Then you enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and continue another five miles to the end of the paved section. Here you will find a picnic area and the beautiful Heintooga Overlook. We will eat and socialize and view the beautiful Heintooga Overlook. Be sure to bring blankets, chairs, and picnic or snack food.
WE WILL NOT BE DOING THE EXTENDED Balsam Mountain Road ride. Due to not being open yet.

This will be an all day ride, and we expect a huge turnout. We hope to see you all there!
  • Open to new Wrangler owners who aren't affiliated with any club yet? We just bought our new JKU 3 weeks ago and live up in Greeneville.
  • Please someone let me know a time to meet up with y'all . Kevin said for us to wait on y'all at entrance to blue ridge parkway. We r staying in Cherokee NC all weekend. And just to make sure im thinking correctly since many of y'all know last ride to big foot peak we stayed in pigeon forge and was 1.75 hr away. We were closer to home chickamauga ga from the ride but I had read wrong and booked pigeon forge. Lol. So please some verify the ride in there right outside Cherokee nc on hwy 441 at that entrance to blue ridge parkway correct?? Need to time to meet also.
  • Need a time to meet y'all at blue ridge parkway entrance in Cherokee nc

  • Oh no. We booked a room in Cherokee is that not where the ride is?
  • Does anyone have any suggestions on a place to camp? OR Can I just camp anywhere in the park?
