Find Cheaha State Park which is about 20 miles east of Talladega, AL. From there simply take State Route 49 south all the way to Tuskegee.
The route is especially scenic on the northern part as you will travel through the very beautiful, scenic, and rugged part of the Alabama which falls in the Talladega National Forest. Here you can enjoy seeing the highest point in Alabama - Cheaha Mountain (2,799). From there you will head south and pass through a few rural small towns and make your way down to Tuskegee
The roads are hilly and have a lot of twists and turns. Watch for waterfalls along the roadside in the spring. There are stretches where little amenities are available. If going off into a canyon or wilderness area, be sure you have plenty of gas and drinking water.
Overall there isn't too much to offer out on this route in terms of amenities yet you'll find plenty of eating places scattered along the way (ex. fish, BBQ, steak burger joints). You may want to visit Cheaha State Park at the beginning of your route.
