Written DirectionsThe Trace begins in Dover, TN on hwy. 79. From there, look for the signs for LBL (Land between the Lakes). If you follow those signs, they will direct you to take a road running to the north called "The Trace." Simply take this road north all the way up to the end in Grand Rivers, KY.
SceneryStarting at the southern end of beautiful Land Between the Lakes, this ride offers lot's of scenery and places to stop including a bison range, 1850's settlement, lake views and more. Overall the ride offers equal parts of views of wooded stretches and open scenery vistas. Update from "bikesand beards" on 6/13/12: The ride from Clarksville to Dover Tennessee is ok. Nothing special. Once you get onto the Trace things change. The Trace is full of things to stop and see. There is Elk and Bison Ranges, Free Roaming American Bison, Springs, Lakes, A Western Furnace and so much more. Plys the long tracks of beautiful land. And of course not to far into the Trace is the Homeplace. This is a 4 dolalr tour that takes you through an old times living working farm. This farm has houses that you can walk through, and animals that are just walking around.
Drive EnjoymentThe road through the trace is a 2 lane, blacktop with nice curves and gently rolling hills. Overall it is a great motorcycle road to ride!
Fort Donaldson Civil War Battlefield Update from "bikesand beards" on 6/13/12: All the roads in this ride are maintained fairly well. I came across no potholes, but did see a few small grooves in the road.
