I ran it from Pigeon Forge to the Foothills Parkway
, and from Maryville back to Pigeon Forge.
There are some wide open fields where you can see far off into the distance, small town charm all along the way, and some good curves mixed in.
It is a good way to get from Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge to the 'Dragon'.
The road surface was in good condition, with plenty of food and gas stops.
Not many places to pass in the 2 lane section, so traffic can be a bummer if you get behind the wrong car.
If not, you can rip and roar a little bit.
There are some nice sweepers along the way and and some tighter turns to keep it interesting.
I wouldn't go out of my way to ride this road, but if you find yourself using it to get somewhere it's a pretty good ride.
