Really enjoyed the Salt Creek Road. Well…

Written Directions

Just east of Nashville on IN46 turn onto Salt Creek Road next to the Circle K/Shell station. Head northwest on the road to Gatesville. At Gatesville, hop onto Gatesville Road west to Clay Lick Road and head back toward Nashville. Make a sharp right onto Old State Road 46 to take you back into Nashville.


Beautiful twisty roads in the hills and forests of Brown County. Salt Creek Road follows the creek for a while then heads upward. There are craft stops and farms and beautiful trees in the fall.

Drive Enjoyment

Paved county roads are sometimes a bit bumpy. All of these were in great condition. Salt Creek was very enjoyable with the twisties. Gatesville Road and Clay Lick are straighter.

Tourism Opportunities

Besides the beautiful scenery that is year round, Nashville, Indiana, is an artists' mecca! The entire town plays to tourism with quaint shops, dining, and bed and breakfasts. It crawls with people in the fall with the university about 30 miles west, a major state park just out of town, and the gorgeous leaf peeping, but even in summer it's a delight and much quieter.
