Written Directions

Head south of Linden on Hwy 13 about 3-4 miles then look for Highway 128 off to the right (west). Take a right on to Highway 128 and take that all the way to Clifton, TN.


iding Highway 13? Take a little detour about 3-4 miles south of Linden off of Hwy 13 and ride Highway 128 to Clifton. This little gem is a beautiful ride taking twists, turns, and hills that run not far from the Tennessee River. The length of the ride is about 16-17 miles one way from the turn off of Hwy 13 to Clifton. It's a fun little ride! Try and catch it during the turning of the colors in mid-October at it's best as it is absolutely breathtaking in the fall with the turning of the colors. Clifton is an old riverside town at which the paddlewheel steamboats travelling the Tennessee River would make stops.

Road Quality  

This route takes you through many twists, turns and hills near the Tennessee River. The road conditions are pretty good

Roadside Amenities

Comment: 128 is a great road, but if you have time do the whole loop. Depending on where your coming from take 128 north out of Savanah to 13, go south through Waynesboro and Colliwood to 203/Lutts junction. This will take you back to Savanah. 203 is the best road in the area.
