Tennessee Roads and HIghways

We will be traveling from North Carolina to Tennessee. Our route looks to be on Interstate 40 and State Route 339 in Tennessee. Has anyone used these two roads?

The shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, that route looks anything but straight!!
Been on I-40 & cut across somewhere, but not sure what road it was on.

Well I live in NC. And there's no straight lines. Seriously though I've driven I40 from I77 to Tenn. Depending on what part of Tenn your going. For me living in Alleghany I either have to drive North then West or South then West. I40 is a good road except for Black Mountain which is a little steep but isn't that bad. Depending on what part of NC your driving from but 40 is the major interstate. You will be fine.

I 40 is fine so long as no one wrecks through the gorge. I have been stuck on 40 for hours before because there are no exits for a good stretch. Looks like you are headed to pigeon forge/Gatlinburg area. The few times we have taken the camper there I go I40 on up to 411 and go right past the big Bush's baked beans factory. We live just south of Asheville NC and the other way I go (definitely without the camper) is accross the Blueridge parkway over to 441 through Cherokee and back up accross Newfound Gap over Clingmans Dome. Very scenic and right through the heart of the smokey mountains and dumps you out right in Gatlinburg

We are actually heading east from Pigeon Forge. We will be going to Pigeon Forge from Northern Virginia and then heading towards Rocky Mount after Pigeon Forge.
What about Black Mountain, James? Heading East, is it not too bad in the mountains?

I'd avoid the Blue Ridge Parkway with a camper. Slow going at 45 MPH and tourist looking at everything.

If I was going to Rocky Mount from Gatlinburg definitely I40 East is the way to go.

We won't be near Blue Ridge Parkway. It's one I am avoiding. Thanks Papa-T

Maybe 321 to 40 to 540 to 64 if I was going with a camper.
