Catoosa Canyton, Obed River, Catoosa Wildlife Management Area, Clear Creek, little development, beautiful views, many hills and curves.
Excellent pavement, very hilly areas, very curvy areas. Watch for wildlife. Large motorcycle traffic in any riding weather.
Nothing much after crossing I-40 until you arrive in Wartburg. Gas up before leaving Crossville and crossing I-40. Obed Wild and Scenic River national refuge/park is allong the way and offers paddling, fishing, rock climbing and hiking. Also, after you get to Wartburg, you are only about 5 miles from Frozen Head State Park if you want to check that out.
