Hi I'll be coming from the north and looking for advice on rt68 off I75 up to the Blairsville area. Traveling in TC with a 12' trailer. Thanks...

Sorry, I'm looking at rt 68 starting in Tennessee around sweetwater then picking up 294, to 19/129 into the Blairville Georgia area. Never came to from the north before, traveling in a TC and pulling a 12' trailer. Don't wish to end up on any roads not meant for rv's. Thanks....

It's been years since I've been on TN-68 from Tellico Plains to Ducktown. There aren't many choices to get from I-75 in Tennessee to Murphy NC/Blairsville GA. As I remember TN-68 is a good as any, and better than some others. Both the Cherohala Skyway & US-441 climb to over 4500'. US-129, aka the Tail of the Dragon. A pickup with 12' trailer you wouldn't have any problem, but it would be farther and slower. TN-68 is real good to Tellico Plains, and not any worse than any other from there to Ducktown TN.

Thanks Jaycocamprs, I'm hoping not to be a rolling road block it's not a huge RV, 3500 drw with a 4000lb TC adding the trailer its about 40'. Would like to avoid Chattanooga and take some new to me back roads. I'm aware of the dragon which is close by only take that on the bike.....
