Shortly after leaving Fulton, Mississippi, the route joins the Natchez Trace Parkway for 10 miles. After crossing a low divide into Tennessee, the route follows the Tennessee River northward toward its confluence with the Ohio River.

This area of western Tennessee and Kentucky is rich in American Indian and Civil War history. The Shiloh National Military Park and the Fort Donelson National Battlefield are points of interest along the way. This also follows The Trace Road through the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, a highway with no commercial traffic. Upon reaching the Ohio River, once known as the dividing line between the slave and free states, the route then heads northeast along the river to end at Owensboro, Kentucky.

Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
