INTRO

This is the northern half of Foothills Parkway.  The Parkway is designated to be a total of 72 miles, but it is unfinished and currently runs only 32 miles, creating the excellent opportunity for a one day out-and-back of the entire Parkway.  This segment runs from Walland (the middle of the Parkway) north to the end of the Parkway in Wears Valley.  There are eight unnamed overlooks along this segment of Foothills Parkway. 

There are two ascents along this route - 2.2 miles at the beginning at 6.1% and 3.9 miles beginning at mile 5.9 at 5.4%. The steepest quarter-mile is along the second climb and is 9%.

Roadway:  This is a two lane road in excellent condition with a narrow shoulder throughout most of the ride. 

Traffic:  Mild.

Parking:  If you are doing just this fifteen mile segment, you are probably okay parking on the right side of the road after Foothills Parkway crosses Old Walland Highway, 300 yards before the Foothills Parkway sign and the start of our climb (Map; Street View).  An alternative is to park in the "Start Biking" parking lot in Townsend four miles south (MapStreet View). 
Provisions:  There are no spots for food or beverages along the route.  There is Martahon Gas at the finish and spots for provisions in Townsend 4.5 miles south of climb start (Map). 
This route can be done as an out-and-back at 29 miles and 4,500' gained (Map).
