SUV Drive to Wayah Bald

Registration will open August 14, 2020 at 12:00 pm.

On Saturday, August 29, 2020 the Region will dust off our Macans and Cayennes with David Stori and David Angelus leading us on a drive along a Forest Service Road to the top of Wayah Bald. At the top we’ll have a short walk to the Wayah Bald Lookout Fire Tower built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1937.

We’ll enjoy a picnic at Wayah Bald so we can be socially distant correct and outdoors for maximum safety. There will be two driving groups so we meet guidelines that only allow 24 people per group.

Each drive group will have 12 SUV’s. Meet-up and Departure times are still being determined. This site will have the times once registration opens.

This drive is a “drive what you brung” – a Porsche SUV is not required. If you have a SUV, join David S and David A on this fun, different drive for the club.

The drive will meet up at the Haywood County Rest Area on US-23. After a short freeway drive we will enter the Nantahala Gorge for a beautiful winding drive along the Nantahala River before entering the Forest Service Road off Wayah Road.
