It’s the first-ever official LFAD-labeled event!! For this cruise, we will be hitting the infamous Mohawk Trail which is just an absolutely wonderful drive if you’ve never been before. it’s a very manageable drive and very easy to follow as well. The route will take us through beautiful countryside, a winding mountain road with the infamous hairpin with an unreal view, small rural towns, and more!!
While it is not exactly an overly challenging road I do highly encourage you to make sure your brakes are in very good working order as the downhill can be dangerous if not careful.
More info will come over the following months.

This mid-October rally offers a great opportunity for high autumn color and great driving. We follow 13 rivers and creeks and cross seeral historic Covered Bridges in this romp around curves and up and down hills over a 135 mile route through the Catskill Park and Forst Preserve. This is a noncompetitive tour open to all cars, but you should have good power and good brakes for this challenging and exciting drive. We start at 10am at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskills Visitor Center, 5096 State Route 28, Mount Tremper, NY. This drive is a hoot. No catered breakfast and just $50 per car. Get breakfast at Phoenicia Diner or Bread Alone Bakery nearby.

A love of maps and history led to this rally up the 1802 Schoharie Turnpike to the Old Stone Fort Museum in Schohaire, with a continuing route up the Schoharie Creek and a descent of the Kaaterskill Clove. Along quiet country roads we travel through rural hamlets and villages and stop at museums in Gilboa and Prattsville, and the village of Tannersville.

Join us for a full day of spirited driving where take you on a guided tour through the greatest driving roads in America, located in the Smoky Mountains and including the legendary Tail of the Dragon. You’ll join like-minded car enthusiasts in sports cars, exotic cars and luxury cars and we have everything from Mustangs to McLarens attend. Each event we average people that have travelled from 10 different states, so you never know what new life-long friend you will meet. It’s like a Cars and Coffee, where you actually get to drive! We have all the stops planned, have photographers that drive along with us, have a scheduled photoshoot and have a catered dinner waiting at the conclusion. You just show up with your car ready, and we will handle the rest!

We are local to the area and know all the popular roads, but also the less travelled roads that are just as amazing. Our routes are totally different every month and range from 220-290 miles. We always drive the Tail of the Dragon at least once during every event and will also drive such roads as the Cherohala Skyway, Foothills Parkway, Blue Ridge Parkway, Moonshiner 28, Hellbender, Devil’s Triangle and many more!
