I have been looking at Google Maps at routes to take between Ashland KY and Augusta GA.

My goal is to avoid highways as much as possible and see some good sights.

Anyone have recommendations for things to see that would be on or near this route?

Well, you could go south and hit Cherahola skyway, Tail of the Dragon, Moonshiner 28 from Fontana Dam all the way into Ga.

Are you going through Tail of the Dragon or going another route?
Moonshiner 28 is NC28, runs south to GA, becomes GA 28,
runs south to SC, becomes SC 28.
Near Augusta it becomes GA28 again. Most of this is further
west than the google map route.
You can make changes.

maps.google.com has a route from Ashland, KY to Augusta,GA.
Go into "options" and Check the "avoid Highways" which means Interstate.
Sometimes my old Garmin GPS would not show a "4 lane highway" because it was data-based incorrectly
or it was concurrent on Interstate. I have a google map.

Another route via Pigeon Forge. Highest point in TN at Clingman's Dome.
Toccoa, GA Mt Currahee Band of Brothers 506 PIR museum.
Highest point on BRP is 41 miles from Cherokee, NC
Cherohala Skyway from Robbinsville,NC to Tellico Plains,TN
Great views along the way.

Thanks for the recommendations.

I did the Tail of the Dragon last September when I went to Sky Valley GA.

This trip will likely involve going to Augusta GA first and then up to Sky Valley before an eventual return north to KY.

So I have lots of options for good backroads!

Well, now Cherahola & Dragon are closed at the Tenn/ NC borders.
