Good question, on Google Earth looks like less than five miles. I will try to ride it today and see.
This will increase accidents in my openion. The stretch has so many accidents because
of the slow traffic of the sight seers clashing with the locals cutting across the parkway to get where they are going. This saves the locals a lot of miles. Morning and afternoon on workdays this stretch becomes the Ashville autobon. So the drivers on a high speed schedule to get to or from work will now be dealing with those that are going to run 10-MPH under what ever the speed limit is. Then add us riders into the mix, most have been on a 45+ MPH rythem for miles and suddenly were in rush hour ma-lay
. Oh, and add no passing zones to the mix even though you can see several hundred feet. This will not end well.
