Written Directions

Starting in Nineveh Take South Nineveh Rd to Center lake road then follow Sweetwater trail through a number of turns of the road to Peoga Rd, Gatesville Rd, and the Coup de grfce my favorite run to date Salt Creek Rd. Salt Creek is one of those roads google didn't even bother to map. A tiny little thing where every turn off is gravel and the turns each provide their own punch. The end comes once you hit 46 just outside of nashville.

Scenery

It can be very pretty when the leaves change. If you like rustic rural structures, an old general store, a barn, or your occasional farm house than this scenery has something to offer.

Drive Enjoyment

While you may come upon the occasional large crack due to settling for the most part the road is in excellent condition. No potholes, little gravel, and no obnoxious crack "nets"

Tourism Opportunities

I have not been to any of the amenities because I go for the ride, but if your wanting a drink, place to pee, or open area to park and stretch your legs you won't be waiting long. There is an adorable rustic, rural, general store but like I said, I've yet to go inside.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This road takes a few rides before it comes into it's own. The virgin ride is not the star. Turn around and ride it 3-6 more times and the smooth as butter glide around those turns will not disappoint.

There has been replacement of culverts and the addition of expanded metal bridges. These are not real smooth just be careful.

A most excellent ride! We actually missed a few of the turns around Sweetwater Lake, and it turned out to be every bit as gorgeous anyway. We finally made it to the route, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The road has deteriorated very much, the southern half is in bad shape and very rough pavement with many patches of different grade and age. It is still a beautiful scenery to ride through but I would recommend a slow leisurely pace as the condition of the pavement changes quite frequently.
