Motorcycle Road Length: 50 Miles

Written Directions

Start your ride in Savannah Tennessee (about 90 miles east of Memphis). From Savannah take HWY 69 south and cross into Alabama at which point the road turns into HWY 20. Take Hwy 20 all the way in to Florence, Alabama.

* Note, about 8 miles before you roll into Florence, HWY 20 crosses the Natchez Trace Parkway. That road is worthy to ride on too especially with the view of the Tennessee River. So after you hit Florence, you might turn around and head back up to Natchez Trace and take that in either direction.


Here you'll see a variety of farms, woods and gently rolling hills.

Road Quality  

This road is a smooth road and in very good condition with a few twists and hills especially in Tennessee before coming to the Alabama border. A good route to then catch the famous Natchez Trace Parkway. The road gets flat and straight just before arriving in Florence, Alabama.

Roadside Amenities  

Savannah, Tennessee and Florence, Alabama offer a number of restaurants, motels and B/Bs The Florence area has the famous Helen Keller museum, North Alabama University, and the Tennessee River and dam. Not too far away is the motorcycle rally in Waterloo Alabama in September. Many of the locals are very respectful to motorcyclists and will often give a friendly southern hospitality wave to say hello.

Comment: The best Bar-B-Que you've ever tasted awaits you on this route! It's located off Hwy 69, 4-5 miles south of Savannah Airport. It is located at the intersection of Brunton Road and Pyburns Drive. It's not much to look at on the outside, just a gas station with a small convenience store located at a 4-way stop out in the country. But this is the home of the best Q I have ever eaten! Look for the roadside directing you to Brunton Branch State Park Camping Area. Happy Eating!!!
