GPS Input- Because of our rural location, GPS units & mapping programs are not always reliable. We suggest inputting the longitude & latitude coordinates of our ENTRANCE GATE. Different GPS systems use different formats, so here are a couple of standard formats. GPS #1: 36 26' 6.70"N 84 4' 43.30"W GPS #2: 36.4352 -84.0787. The following is a suggested address which can be used in Mapquest, and on several GPS models: 114 Duff Rd, Duff TN 37729. On most systems, this will put you at our gates (at the bottom entrance to the mountain). Some GPS units will accept the Restaurant's actual address which is 1220 McClouds Trail, Duff, TN 37729. From Knoxville Tennessee: Travel I-75 North to exit 134 (Caryville, La Follette, Jacksboro). From exit 134, travel east on Hwy 63 East for 8.2 miles to red light #9.
