County Roads 14 is located a mile or so north/east of the Tennessee River at the Natchez Trace Parkway. Start in Florence, AL, and follow County Road 14 west to Waterloo, AL. Then take it north to Hwy 69 in Tennessee.
County Rd 14 west of the Natchez Trace runs along the Tennesse River to Waterloo, AL. From Waterloo, County Road 14 goes northerly, and heads into Tennessee and changes to Holland Creek Road, which dead-ends at Hwy 69. The roads runs along the right side of a small valley dotted with farms. From Waterloo to Hwy 69, this road turns into a snake. Plenty of left and right leans with a few sharpies thrown in. There is a Tennessee State Trooper that lives on the Tennessee side of the Alabama border. Speed limit is 35mph where he/she lives.
Road quality is fair, though I remember the Alabama side was better than the Tennessee side.
Really not much to do off the bike ... Waterloo, AL is the last chance for Go-Juice (gas) for awhile.
