I just got back from an excellent 8 day trip from Ontario to Waynesboro by truck / trailer ( 5 bikes , a 12 - 14 hour drive ) , then south on the BRP , stayed 2 nights at the Tail of the Dragon . Some very bad fog and Rain on the BRP , though when the weather cleared , excellent views . The Tail is quite an experience , the Cherohalla is an amazing road .
I took off on my own for a few days , and rode the BRP solo from Boone N.C. back to Waynesboro , then on to Romney , W.V . in one excellent , long day . Next day , rode Skyline dr from north to south . It cost $20 USD to enter the park , lots of traffic , very low speed . I stopped in frustration at Skyland resort : excellent food and beer , very pricy accomodations , killer view across the Shenandoah valley from my private deck . I left the next morning at 5 am , had the road to myself ( many deer ) , amazing sunrise over my left shoulder , immaculate road , a magical experience .
