North Central Tennessee Tour on U.S. 127

U.S. Highway 127
Crossville, TN 38572

Scenery: Lots of farm land that look like "Post Cards". Undeveloped land and hills provide great views. Rolling hills. Old abandoned school houses are interesting stops, but be aware farmers use some for storage!

Road Quality: Two lane roads in great condition. Lots of shaded curves which well be covered with leaves in the late fall, so ride slow. Speed limits from 35 to 55 but take your time.

Roadside Amenities: Lots of road side stores but spaced out. The Old Country store at Forbus is a must stop. Fresh made sandwiches are great. Don't get in too much of a hurry, this is a "different time zone", a little slower. Local honey, jams and such for sale so keep a saddle bag ready! Pall Mallis a great place to stop to explore the life of Sgt Alvin York, WWI Medal of Honor (MOR) recipient and Highest decorated WWI soldier. Visit his Grave site. Directions are posted by signs. Byrdstown offer a few roadside restaurants but I'm usually going to Dale Hollow's boat dock restaurant. Have a map of the area with you in case you want to explore some of the roads around Dale Hollow Lake.
