Written Directions

Scenery

You will be riding thru the Cherokee National Forest and Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Drive Enjoyment

The road is almost prefect with virtually no traffic,except for the last 1.6 miles.The pucker factor is that last 1.6 miles is a down grade of about 10% on dirt, so don't ride in the rain or shortly after a rain. Overall it is mostly twisties with altitude changes.

Tourism Opportunities

None

Motorcycle Road Additional info

To me it is one of the best roads I have ever been on. I also really enjoyed that last 1.6 miles.

My brother and I finished our 1-day, 200-mile tour of twisties in TN & NC with Tn32. They should call it "Moonshiner's Worm" - it's set way back in the woods and is every bit as twisted as the worm on a moonshine still.
After rolling through the Dragon, Hellbender, and Foothills Parkway, Tennessee 32 was tighter twister and more technically demanding than any of them. My brother rode a sport touring BMW and while he made it through quicker I was tired from the long day and took my time taking many tight double-back turns in second gear. This road IS NOT for new or minimally experienced riders. It is more difficult than the Dragon due to numerous tigh turns and steep climbs & descents. I rarely got above 20mph and when I did I almost immediately had to Get on the brakes to execute a tight turn/switchback. The pavement ends at the crossing of the Appalachian Trail. From that point it's down a fairly steep dirt road about a mile to the pavement and two more miles to interstate I 40.
For those who like very tight, technical, secluded rides Tennessee 32 is for you. For those who like views, sweeping turns, and carrying a little speed- STAY AWAY.

I came in from NC side. After exiting off I-40 it was only a few miles to the Tennessee state line but, about 2 miles worth of dirt road to get there. Once you hit the Tn. state line it is paved. This is a great road! Passed three vehicles. Great pavement. Serious tight twisties. A blast!

Nice ride, not for the faint of heart. This is a technical road especially on a cruiser. These corners come up quick and require some skill. Minimal traffic but if you do get behind someone be prepared for a snoozefest.
Pros: Very few adjoining roads /driveways = less traffic you would encounter.
Cons: Some turns can trick even experienced riders.
