I think 28 gives the best of both worlds. I did crash on the skyway though. Target fixated looking at a rest stop, went across the road and I dumped it on the grass. Didnt like the option of riding off the mountain LOL

I think the week before I was there someone went over a guard rail on the Cherohala.

We stopped at a little deli/town store and they had t-shirts and bumper stickers promoting the road.

No issues withthe road, but I did hit a turkey as 6 of them decided to cross the road in front of me, fortunatley for me I got one before it could try to get airborn so I hit it with my tire and didnt damage my bike.
I don't know the name of the lodge, but that sound about right, I did buy a T shirt. Route 80 is also fun, in the same area.

For anyone traveling to the Dragon and those parts check out the maps from; a must for the "new in town"
