New River Highway

Route 116
Oliver Springs, TN 37840

Scenery: From gentle country road sweepers to gnarly steep switchbacks; from serene straights to Dragon like twisties with guard rails of death; from gentle pull-offs to three foot deep rock strewn gullies just inches from the pavement; from peaceful farmsteads to sections of rutted roadway right out of a horror movie.

Road Quality: Country road sweepers to gnarly steep switchbacks. Road quality is fairly good, has some patch work in a few areas.

Road Side Amenities: Very few areas to stop to grab something cold to drink or something to eat. Best place is in Oak Ridge or in Petros before you start heading up the mountain.
