Written Directions

Leave from Guntersville toward Guntersville State Park on Highway 227 near the Spring Creek Marina. You'll cross a bridge and hit some of the best twisty's this state has to offer. This will take you to Langston, AL. The road will merge with Highway 67 before you get there. Once you are on 67 drive all the way to Highway 35 along side the Tennessee River and over the bridge in to Scottsboro.

Scenery

Depends on the season you go. Fall is beautiful. Color along the entire ride if you time it right. Spring has blooms from the hardwood trees to flora along the road, lake and river. You will be following and alongside Lake Guntersville and the Tennessee River the entire ride. There are several stretches with tree canopy that can be incredible at the right time of the year, meaning when it's warm and the trees have bloomed or before they start falling off in the late fall. Winter is still a great drive, just a different vibe.

Drive Enjoyment

Langston to Scottsboro is new black top as of this past weekend (1/17) The road from Guntersville to Langston isn't quite as good and there is a short stretch or two with some pot holes to avoid but overall the quality is outstanding.

Tourism Opportunities

Few small general store type places but it is sparse. That is part of the appeal for me. You are getting out of civilization.

This is a great road with lots of easy twisties and excellent lake views. Definitely more fun than taking US79.

This road is decent with great scenery. Pavement was good enough that when I wasn't around a bunch of cars, I could wind it out, but not much to try and drag knees on. The only thing that kept this from being a 3 was the view along the road.
