Starting from Oak Ridge, TN, and go west on highway 62 for about 4 miles to the town of Oliver Springs,TN where you want to turn right (north) on to Rt 116/330 and take this up to Lake City where it intersects with I-75.
Lots of mountain vistas, see Brushy Mountain max security prison and ride through part of Frozen Head State Park.
surface is good, may have some gravel in turns, watch for coal trucks on weekdays, very twisty and mountain grades. Note: Sections of this road have very sharp curves. Be careful!
Aside from a stop for a mountain vista, not much in-between, no entrance along TN 116 into Frozen Head park; eat and gas up at either end.
