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!

Drive Enjoyment

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!

Tourism Opportunities

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.

I would have give it 3.5 rating if that was an option. If your looking for a spirited ride, this one in not for you. Pavement was nice, scenery nice, has some traffic, but all in all nice ride for what it is. If I did it again I would shorten the loop on the east side of lake and take McR Alabama #6 ride Guntersville to Scottsboro (S. Saulty Rd to 227 or visa versa) depending on which direction you ride.

The scenery is okay, but this area is heavily populated and used. There really wasn't anywhere where I could just wind it out. It's okay, and probably a good way to pass the time if you're from the area, but there are many roads in the area that rival this one. Sadly, that makes it just average for a lake road.
