- Great Smoky Mountains, Cumberland Plateau, Blue Ridge Parkway and Chattahoochee National Forest Among Attractions in Four-Day and Three-State HSR Ridge Runner Rally

 


The Third-Annual Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) Ridge Runner Rally began its first of a four-day journey through the Great Smoky Mountains, the Blue Ridge Parkway and other notable landmarks and destinations in the scenic Southeastern U.S. Monday with a sold-out gathering of HSR members driving an impressive variety of sports cars.



Day one kicked-off with the group leaving the Westin Hotel Chattanooga, which has been a headquarters hotel of the Ridge Runner Rally since the event’s inception in 2019.



The Volunteer State played host to Ridge Runner Rally participants throughout Monday, with the day’s lunch stop at Monkey Town Brewing Company in Dayton, Tennessee. The trip from Chattanooga to Dayton included a trek through Prentice Cooper State Forest, which is situated on the scenic Tennessee River Gorge about 10 miles West of Chattanooga.

 


The Rally then traveled through the Savage Gulf State Natural Area and Fall Creek Falls State Park, two marvels of nature in the Cumberland Plateau, which is in the Southern part of the Appalachian Plateau in the Appalachian Mountains.



The afternoon route had the group traveling the national Foothills Parkway, which traverses the terrain and foothills of the northern Great Smoky Mountains in East Tennessee. The path led the Rally to the day’s destination and overnight stop at the Dancing Bear Lodge in Townsend, Tennessee.



The next three days of the Ridge Runner Rally will see participants tour the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Chattahoochee National Forest and other must-see attractions in a stretch through North Carolina, Georgia and back to Tennessee.

 


Thursday’s final leg of the Ridge Runner cruises through the Chattahoochee and then along the Ocoee River before returning to the Westin Hotel Chattanooga and a farewell and awards dinner nearby at The Read House hotel.
