Ride about 25 miles north from Knoxville, TN to the city of Rocky Top, where highway 116 takes you down the valley southwest thru Fratersville and Briceville. A few miles later the road suddenly doubles back northward over the mountains and becomes a great deal more exciting.

Ten miles later, the highway crosses the New River and heads southwest again toward Fork Mountain. Then there's 5 miles of twisties, as shown in the photo above. Finally, our 100 mile route follows highway 62 back to Knoxville. Click on the Google map to see the entire route.

"Big Ridge State Park was first developed by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), the National Park Service and the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s as part of the greater Norris Project. The park was one of three of the project's demonstration recreational areas that eventually became state parks (Norris Dam State Park and Cove Lake State Park are the other two)."
