    Short notice, but I am heading to Dale hollow lake tomorrow from Cincinnati. I will probably take 75 most of the way, get off near Renfro Valley or further south. Any route suggestions?

    Where on the lake are you going?
    If youre pressed for time You may want to beat it S on I75 a little further
    Got a Gazateer?
    If so check this out
    I 75 S to exit 25 just below Corbin
    25W to 90 W now the fun begins
    90W to US 27 S
    now it depends where on the lake you are going

    Get me anywhere near the lake and I'll be fine. I have been all around the area since I was ten on foot, bikes, dirtbikes, boats and cars. This is the first time I have a whole day to piddle around and just ride some roads nearby. I am excited, I will try to take as many pics as possible.

    Done 154, 127, 27. I fish on the Wolf river a lot. Think I'll try some thin black lines, like these, i got mad photoshop skills:rofl From the 3d map, it looks like the road circled follows a ridgetop, then I can pick up 154 to the cabin:

    Actually, after looking at a Kentucky map, the route you gave is the way I usually go home if I am coming from BSF or the wolf river, cept I hit 75 at Williamsburg or follow 297 to Jellico.
