Tellico Plains Loop

Starr Mountain, Towee Falls, Tellico Plains

This segment starts and ends at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson, Maryville, TN.

Starr Mountain and Old Furnace Roads are the dirt stars of this trip in Tellico Plains. But to get there we are taking you down every twisty paved road we can find without a yellow centerline. You’ll travel down such road gems such as Vinegar Valley, Notchin Hill, and Shoal Creek. Traveling through farms, Hollers, and forests until you reach Starr Mountain Road. Starr Mountain is a dirt, gravel, and rocky road up the mountain, briefly transitioning to a US Forest Service Road and back on Starr Mountain. Next, you will transition to Ivy Trail which is a smooth, twist run through to Towee Falls Road. Soon you’ll be on Hwy 68 jumping on Old Furnace Road, a fun dirt road leading to the Cherohala Skyway. From there we’ll sneak around to White Plains and catch the paved portion of Citico Creek Road (catch the unpaved portion on another ride). Then a nice ride up Hwy 360 to Trigona road and back to Smokey Mountain Harley Davidson. Enjoy the 165-mile tour through Tellico Plains.
