On Thursday, July 16th, we took a Day Ride to the Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park just outside of Limestone, Tennessee.
Jeff kicks off our day in this short video:
We left our home at 9:30am. It was warm with beautiful sunshine and mostly blue skies.
We took 640 to Asheville Highway. At the four way, we took 25/70 to Dandridge and then into Newport.
We rode through Newport continuing on 25/70 until we took a quick detour to ride through the community of Del Rio.
After taking a few photos in Del Rio we got back on 25/70 and then took 107 north through the Cherokee National Forest.
We then continued north on 107. This took us just south of Tusculum where we took 351 north into Chuckey, Tennessee.
The Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park is right outside of Chuckey. When we got to the park, the swimming pool was packed with kids from the Greeneville Boys and Girls Club. It was great to hear how much fun they were having in the pool.
We really enjoyed our stay at this nicely maintained park and learned a lot about Davy Crockett.
After leaving the museum, we rode north to Limestone, Tennessee.
From Limestone, we got on 11E and rode into Greeneville. It was right around 2:30pm and we were ready for lunch.
After lunch we rode through historic downtown Greeneville (another great Day Ride destination in itself) then rode 321 south.
A few miles outside of Greeneville, we took 349 west- a scenic country road that took us to 340 north just south of Morristown.
From Morristown, we rode south on 11E stopping once to fuel up and drink a Icee. (Pamo’s favorite cold drink.) We then rode 11E through Jefferson City and on into Knoxville.
Our total ride was 206 miles. We arrived home at 5:30pm.
