The Southern Highroads Trail is a 364-mile National Scenic Byway that travels through 4 states of the southern Blue Ridge Mountain highlands. The 364-mile byway will take visitors thru the mountainous regions of the Chattahoochee National Forest of North Georgia, the Sumter National Forest in northwestern South Carolina, the Nantahala National Forest in western North Carolina and the Cherokee National Forest in southeastern Tennessee.
The Southern Highroads Trail forms a complete circle bringing travelers back to its chosen starting point and can be accessed at numerous junctions depending on where the traveler wishes to begin.
The Blue Ridge Highlander has composed a full virtual tour of the Southern Highroads Trail in its Scenic Highlander Tours entitled “Aye’ll Take the Highroads.” Each state along the trail offers its own unique mountain experience. Travelers can begin to enjoy the journey by clicking the Scenic Highlander Tours link below and take the full virtual tour or click the additional link below which will take you right to the state selection of choice.
Although very enjoyable, the mountains can be a driving challenge to a flatlander (no offense), to help you with your new venture, take a look at our driving tips.
