The ride to Sewanee is beautiful in itself and ends on top of the mountain in the town. See the town, shops, and college. SEAD Ron Simmons says it's the best day ride he's found in the area. Some parts are very technical. Pack a lunch and stop to eat in Sewanee or on top of Monteagle Mountain near I-24. You could also consider an RTE to one of the many restaurants in Sewanee or Monteagle.
Not yet a national park, but close. The rim ride is an intense 10–11 mile collection of twisties with canyon views. Very nice visitor center with free video where you can rest and cool down. Nice place to picnic and take a comfort break.
Mt. Cheaha is the highest elevation point in Alabama at 2,411 feet. Rolling countryside most of the way until you reach Skyline Drive at Hwy 78, then the fun begins!
