Likely I have ridden the road but your description doesn't make sense.

Do you mean US64 from Memphis to I24 then I24 to US72 and down to South Pittsburg?

If so the road is a bit winding just out of Memphis then turns to easy 4 lane after a bit. I don't recall anything to wild. Once on I24 you go up Monteagle Mt which is long and steep (think truck runoffs) probably the worst of it all. On the south side it is again long and I seem to recall less windy than the north side. But keep your speed low or pull over at the top in the truck area to cool. Not horrible but be careful on brake temps. From there on it is easy going.

The only other thing to note is you might be told by GPS to go up 41 through Cowan. I would not recommend this as the climb up Monteagle Mt is 25MPH switchbacks. Possible but not fun. Though at the top there is a pull off for the rock (awesome view from it) and the University of the South is a beautiful campus. If you have a toad there is also a Natural Bridge in the area. I would not recommend a RV there though.

64 is a pretty nice road. You will go through several small towns and see some nice country side. I would take 64 to Monteagle then get on 24.
