This is a beautiful day ride thru some of West Tn's prettiest country. Follows the 'Trace'(The Trace, also known as KY 453, is a 45 mile highway that runs right through the middle of Land Between the Lakes (LBL). This scenic highway begins at Grand Rivers, KY at the northern entrance of LBL, and ends at Dover, TN, the southern entrance of LBL. ) up into KY where you can stop for lunch or dinner at the World Famous Patti's restaraunt, that is famous for it's 2' thick pork chops. Then it winds back down thru Murray, KY to Martin, TN and back to Kenton, TN. You could start this ride anywhere along the route and finish at the same spot.GREAT RIDE! Link to Patti's

Just a couple of suggestions to add to the route. When you cross into Stewart county, take HWY 232 to 147 to 49 back up to Dover. Continue your route through LBL. Then when you leave Murray, go to Puryear and take 140 back down to 54 then back to Dresden. These two additional roads add a lot to the ride ( if you like winding roads ).
