The Cumberland Plateau is ablaze with colors in the fall season. In addition to the beauty of the land, the foliage colors are icing on the cake.  Fentress County, home of Sgt. Alvin C. York, the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area, and Pickett State Park is a simply amazing place to be in the fall.  The Fentress County Chamber of Commerce has revitalized two driving tours for the area.  The York Tour and the Banner Tour are great ways to see the stunning colors and experience the charm of the area, and at just about 40 miles each, they can take as little as an hour or as long as you’d like.

The York tour begins on Highway 127 just north of Jamestown and takes a turn on Squirrel Flat Road, then on Doubletop Road, and flows onto Stepp Gap, then back to Hwy 127 to make your way through Sgt. York’s State Historical Site, the general stores, and other quaint businesses. While on the tour, enjoy homemade fudge from Forbus General Store and then onto the Historical Site and General Store for a leisurely tour of the site. Let the folks at the York General Store make you a healthy sized sandwich, complete with chips, soft drink and a Moon Pie.  Take your sack lunch over to the Grist Mill and enjoy watching the water and kids play at the park.  Stop by PWP’s Wolf River Valley Growers on the left for some “pretty as can be” pansies or mums to take back with you.

On the Banner Tour, enjoy driving from Jamestown on 52 East to Allardt, where the famous Allardt Great Pumpkin Festival is held the first Saturday in October of each year, and where the Old Allardt School House has been transformed into a quite charming Bed & Breakfast. Continue straight on Allardt Tinch road until you reach Banner Springs Road. Turn left onto Banner Roslin Road. Bear right to stay on Roslin Road then right on Jonesville Road. Fun for the whole family can be had at Edwards Amazing Acres, located just off of Roslin Road on Ernest Norris Road. The beauty of the land and the tall majestic trees are simply breathtaking.  Coming to the end of Jonesville road, turn right and travel on Hwy 62, leading you to Hwy 127 again.  Head north on Highway 127 and not too far up the road, Continuing up 127, you’ll see the handiwork of Mountain Barn Builders, and coming back into Jamestown, East Fork Stables greets you on the left and Tennessee’s Oldest Winery, Highland Manor Winery, on the right.

If you would like a county map please contact the Fentress County Chamber of Commerce at 114 West Central Avenue in Jamestown or call them at 931-879-9948.
