Looking for Northern Alabama Road Suggestions

Hi folks. Next month a friend and I are going to explore some of the roads in Northern AL. We plan on starting from Ringgold, GA because it is a convenient place to meet.

Once we leave Ringgold we have 3 days and plan on riding the Little River Canyon area and possibly to the Barber Museum (I've been there and my friend hasn't). On the 3rd day we want to head back to GA for a run home (South Carolina and Florida).

Do you know of any "must ride" roads in the area. Thanks.

Well I did a ride from Roanoke, AL to Cheaha Mountain (this maybe a bit too far south for your ride but..) and there were some pretty nice roads along the way with some great views. I believe we came up route 49. Once in Cheaha State Park you can hit several rodes and there is a little shop there with WIFI.

Hey Jarvis. Thanks for the info. When I look at the map on the link you gave me, it appears that Cheaha is huge. My guess is that the mountain is down near Union, AL. Is that where we should head?
