Begins in Corinth Ms ( The Reason for Battle of Shiloh), traveling 72 E to Natchez Trace. Goin North on Natchez Trace to Hwy 412 to Hohenwald through the foot hills of the appalachia and down 128 following the Tenn river through the river town of Clifton Tn. to Hwy 64. Where you then head east to Savannah Tn cross the river to Crump Head down 142 and while you are there stop by Shiloh Military park see some history and visit Hiram and Julia a pair of nesting American Bald Eagles. Turn Right on Hwy 22 and follow it through the turns and twists all the way back to Corinth Ms. Where you can then stop by the All American Diner for some great food and service.
This route covers the generous section of the Natchez trace and journeys through the foot hills of the Appalachia winding through twists and turns landing in Clifton Tn a beautiful river side town on the Tn river, Rest up a few and head to Savannah Tn and cross the TN river to Crump. If you make it on a weekend stop by Crump Trade days an Biker friendly Flea Market. Hang a left on Hwy 142 and plan on stopping by Shiloh Military Park see the eagles and tour the battle field, bloody pond and the old Shiloh Church. Then Hop on Hwy 22 for some nice twists and turns. If you like a spring Ride Join the Annual SSG Seth Ricketts Memorial Ride a 206 mile Poker Run, Bike and car show and Did I say music fest? This event raises money for the Fisher House - A kind of Ronald McDonald house for our wounded veterans and their families to stay while our warriors are receiving care at the hospital.
Lots of great scenery, sweeping curves and a few twisties especially in the foothills and from Savannah to Corinth.
Just enough to make the ride feel comfortable, yet not crowded. If I wanted a stop every 10 miles then I need to stay on the hwy with my trust GPS pointing to the nearest...We ride folks not stop and shop. A cool stop for a leg stretch is the Meriwether Lewis Memorial ( Of Lewis and Clark) Who died while traveling the Natchez Trace. And Shiloh Military Park cant be beat for a stop and ride through along the battle fields.
