Is it better to take the 40 from Cherokee to Asheville, or the Blue Ridge Parkway? I'm guessing it would take twice as long to take the parkway, and I'm wondering if the scenery is worth the extra time. I heard the 40 is a beautiful drive as well. How do the two compare? (We will be there in mid-October.)

Are there waterfalls along either drive? If so, are they close to the road or do you have to hike more than a mile to get to them? We have a lot to squeeze in for one day...

I usually take 19 from Ashville to Cherokee instead of 74. It is a back country road but a nice ride. 74 is a 4 lane highway mostly.

If you come during the week, the Parkway would be a beautiful/scenic/colorful trip. On the week-ends you will be joining several thousand other folks so traffic will be onerous. I think 74 has some nice scenery also. Any route will be worthwhile, depends on what your traffic tastes are.
