Written Directions

Begin in Rainsville, AL (just 10 min. off of I-59). Travel south on highway 75 about 10 miles and turn right onto county road 400 which will quickly become AL highway 227. This road will take you down the mountain and into Lake Guntersville State Park for some great scenery. Be cautious of a left turn between the mountain and the lake that keeps you on 227. 227 will lead into downtown Guntersville. When you meet up with highway 431 take a right for more lake views. A few miles after the bridge crossing the lake you will take a right onto highway 79 which rolls along the river into Scottsboro. Highway 79 will meet with the on-ramp to highway 72 east. Take a right onto 72 east a few miles until the highway 35 ramp. You will take a right going southeast on highway 35 until you end up back up the mountain in Rainsville.

Scenery

This route has a great path that takes you through valleys, across the mountain and in many places hugs the winding path of a nearby river. It's a perfect and convenient 80 mile loop with scenery that just can't be beat!

Road Quality

You will enjoy good quality pavement the entire route combined with a strong collection of turns, climbs, and descents. You cross multiple bridges and experience a lot of "road diversity" between turns and straights. This is a solid 4!

Roadside Amenities

There are many good places to stop for a rest and to get gas or food. Small cities and lots of country side.

The map does not match the description ... the right turn onto 227 for the descent to the lake and the ride in the park are missing.
