For anyone who has been there, what type of roads do you consider State Routes 231 and 31 in Tennessee to be? Meaning, are they two-lane, have easy grades or mountainous, and not too many sharp curves?
We're wanting to avoid Nashville, so thinking of taking (traveling North) I-24 to 840 to I-40 for one exit East, to Lebanon, TN and pick up SR 231N (SR 31N follows this for a while) and then pick up I-65 at Bowling Green, KY.
Or, would you just go 840N to I-40W to pick up the outer belt around Nashville on the East side to pick up I-65 on the North side and hope for the best?
We are wanting to stay at a COE around J Percy Priest Lake, that's why we'll be in that area.
