Cherokee Removal Park

Birchwood, Tennessee

This route will take you west into the Central Time Zone on some twisty and straight roads. You can bring a lunch and eat at Cherokee Removal Park. This park is located where the Hiwassee River empties into the Tennessee River. This is an all-day ride and we at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson hope you enjoy the ride as much as we did.


1 take a right out of the SMH-D and follow the route to Tellico Plains. Once you turn off of Hwy 360 the road gets narrow and I call it going back in time.
