Start in the town of Crossville, TN and head out of town North on Hwy 298/Genesis Rd. Stay on Hwy 298 till it runs into Hwy 62. Take a left and get on Hwy 62 heading west and go 20 miles to Hwy 127. Turn right on Hwy 127 (heading North) 5 miles to Hwy 85/52. Take a left on Hwy 85/52 (heading West) thru Alpine, TN and on to Livingston, TN. Note: after Livingston Hwy 85/52 splits ... stay on Hwy 85 heading west for about another 20 miles till Hwy 85 runs into Hwy 53 (Gainesboro area). Turn right on to Hwy 53 (heading North) and go 11 miles till you see Hwy 52/Livingston Rd on the right (as you're pulling into Celina, TN). Take a right on to Hwy 52/Livingston Rd (heading East) and go 10 miles to Hwy 136/Standing Stone State park Rd. Take a right on to Hwy 136/Standing Stone State Park Road (heading South) and it will take you into Standing Stone State Park. When you get to the park sign entrance take a left and proceed into the park and enjoy. When you're ready to leave, get back out to Hwy 52 and take a right (heading east-southeast) through Livingston ... stay on Hwy 52 as it turns an easterly direction and takes you into Jamestown, TN.(approx 38 miles). Turn right on to Hwy 127 (heading South) and take this to the end point of Crossville, TN (approx 35 miles).
Wonderful two lane roads, rolling hills and great fall colors when in season. Light traffic, no major cities. Standing Stone State Park is good place to relax with a walking bridge over creek and decent amenities.
Good road conditions some tight switchback roads to Livingston, and toward Jamestown. No interstates but good good road quality!
Lots of nice little towns to stop at along the way ... spaced out nicely. Possible places to stop include Crossville, Livingston, Jamestown, Standing Stone State park.
I have ridden over these roads several times and they are a rare joy. Enough steep grades and switchbacks to occasionally get your adrenaline pumping but lots of scenic riding through the hills. Truly a great ride!

I moved to Celina, TN after retiering from South Florida with two things in mind rideing my bike and fishing. I have ridden this route several times and it is a very good ride I would recommend it highly for anyone passing through the area. The road conditions are good however there are some serious turns and switch backs take your time and enjoy the scenery.
