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

(STAY TUNED FOR A MEET UP PLACE AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE EVENT)
**Muddy Buddys group will have a different meet up point and time.

This year's Go Topless Day ride will be a beautiful less traveled drive to Balsam Mountain via the Heintooga Ridge Road that starts at the Blue Ridge Parkway (just 11 miles from the south end of the Parkway). For the first four miles of this paved, two-lane road, we are still in the Blue Ridge Parkway National Park boundaries, complete with some nice high-elevation overlooks looking down on the mountain ridges. Then we enter the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and continue another five miles to the end of the paved section. Here we will have a picnic area to eat and socialize and view the beautiful Heintooga Overlook. Be sure to bring blankets, chairs, and picnic or snack food.

From there, we will take the one-lane unpaved Heintooga Round Bottom Road. The 14-mile Heintooga-Round Bottom Road begins its curving route from an altitude of 5,535 feet and descends to about 2,000 feet.

This will be an all day ride, and we expect a huge turnout. We hope to see you all there!
