Best Detour Route TN to Ashville NC or vice versa.

We have just returned after the winter storm; the best Detour is definitely using Knoxville/Newport I-40, then 25/70 to 26 to Ashville.

Not much traffic, quite clear & clean...

Yellow line: detour

on: Express Route via Scenic Interstate Byway

Sophie0811,

I agree, however you can't be impatient with potential steady drivers in front of you or potential tailgaters behind you during those highway turns or a couple of small town stops which slow you down. It is, after all a scenic road not meant to carry you through at uninterupted high speeds. It might add an hour and a half onto your normal I-40 trip through this area, but is prefferable to going much further out of your way on the I-81 detour in my opinion.

Sophie0811 - it appears that you are disagreeing with someone who agreed with you. What am I missing?
