DRIVING DIRECTIONS

***Please be your kind­est on your way here. Ida is in a rural area of tight-knit com­mu­ni­ties. Accord­ingly, our neigh­bors and the Sher­iff tend to take notice. We do our best to be kind to the peo­ple we share mid­dle Ten­nessee with, and you should too. All roads that lead here have speed traps, so watch the speed limit. If you head to town or need to stop for direc­tions, please be on your best behav­ior and do call us first. Thank you! Note: Please take our phone num­ber with you (615–597-4409).

FROM ATLANTA:

Take I-75 North to Chat­tanooga, then I-24 West. Take Exit 110 (Hwy 53 North) and take a right. Drive on for about 24 miles. Turn right onto 281 East. Go to the first stop sign at 70S. Con­tinue for­ward on 281 until it dead ends. Take a left onto 146 North. Fol­low this road about 5 miles. You will pass the Short Moun­tain Store on your left and about a mile later you will see a fork to your left. You will see two hand painted signs which read “Mt. Moriah…The Bap­tist Church” and “Church of Christ at Mt. Ararat” (look care­fully for them—they are small signs!). This is Pea Ridge Road (but there is no street name sign). Turn left. (If you get to a sign that says Dekalb County, then you have missed the turn by about a mile) Pea Ridge Road will fork in less than a mile—bear right. Fol­low it 8 miles until it descends into a val­ley and crosses a small bridge. Imme­di­ately after the bridge, turn right onto a gravel road (Cave Hol­low Rd.). Go about 100 feet and take your first right (Vick­ers Hol­low Rd.). Cross a lit­tle bridge and con­tine along an even worse gravel road for about a mile. Go SLOWLY (10–15 mph) if you value your axle. Cross over the usu­ally dry creek bed (go even slower!) and you’ll find us at the other side.

FROM KNOXVILLE:

Take I-40 West towards Nashville. Take exit 273 (Hwy 56 South don’t take the ear­lier exit that goes North) towards Smithville. Go 13.7 miles until you reach Smithville’s main inter­sec­tion (there’s a Hardee’s, and gas sta­tions). Go right onto Hwy 70 West aka Broad st. Go 1.2 miles and take a left onto Dry Creek rd(at the aban­doned gas sta­tion). The road goes a short way, turns right and comes to a stop sign at a ‘T’. Turn left. At the next stop sign, go for­ward. Go 2.8 miles and then bear left onto Dry Creek rd (yep, there are sev­eral dry creek roads…). Go 0.1 miles and then go for­ward onto the gravel road in front of you. DO NOT GO OVER THE FIRST BRIDGE YOU SEE!!!!! Go another 0.1 miles and THEN go over a bridge and fol­low this road (Please go slow on this one lane dirt road) for 1 mile. You will cross a (usu­ally) dry creek bed (Go really slow) and find your­self in our park­ing area.

FROM NASHVILLE:

Take I-40 East towards Knoxville. Take exit 254 (Hwy 53 South). Drive on 7.6 miles until the road dead ends into High­way 70 in Alexan­dria (watch your speed — Alexan­dria is a speed trap). Take a left onto Hwy 70 East and drive on for another 8 miles. Turn right onto Dry Creek Road (Old Dry Creek). There is a ” Dry Creek Bap­tist Church ” sign and a smaller “New Fron­tiers” sign there, and it is after Dow­ell­town, just past Dry Creek bridge. (If you end up in Smithville, you’ve missed the turn — turn around and go back.) Then see * below.

FROM MURFREESBORO:

Head out on 96 East (towards Las Cas­sas). Drive on for about 25 miles until it dead ends at a flash­ing red light. Take a right onto Hwy 70 East and drive on for about 4.7 miles. Turn right onto Dry Creek Road (not Old Dry Creek). There is a “Dry Creek Bap­tist Church ” sign and a smaller “New Fron­tiers” sign there, and it is after Dow­ell­town, just past Dry Creek bridge. (If you end up in Smithville, you’ve missed the turn — turn around and go back.) Then see * below. *

ONCE YOUVE FOUND DRY CREEK ROAD:

con­tinue on about 4.7 miles. Watch your speed on this wind­ing road. After about 4.7 miles you will have the choice of con­tin­u­ing for­ward onto a gravel road or tak­ing a sharp right over a bridge. Go for­ward onto the gravel road. If the sign is up, it is called Cave Hol­low Road. Go about 100 feet on Cave Hol­low Road and take your first right over a lit­tle bridge (this will put you onto Vick­ers Hol­low Road, again, there may or may not be a sign up), and then an imme­di­ate left after the bridge and con­tinue along an even worse dirt road. Go slowly (10–15 mph) if you value your axle. At the end of this road (in slightly less than a mile), cross over the (usu­ally) dry creek bed (go even slower!) and you’ll find us at the other side.
