Cherohala Skyway

Cherohala Skyway

The Cherohala Skyway, a designated National Scenic Byway, was opened in 1996. The Cherohala Skyway was named for the two National Forests the skyway crosses: “Chero” from the Cherokee
National Forest and “hala” from the Nantahala National Forest. The Cherohala Skyway, located in southeast Tennessee and southwest North Carolina, connects Tellico Plains, Tennessee, with Robbinsville, North Carolina. The Cherohala Skyway is a wide, paved two-lane road that stretches about 40+ miles long. The elevation ranges from 900 to over 5400 feet above sea level, reaching its highest point at the Tennessee-North Carolina state line at Haw Knob.
