American Auto Trail-Cincinnati Lookout Mountain Air-Line Highway (Bitter Creek to Harriman TN)

In 1921, the Chattanooga Automobile Club organized the Cincinnati Lookout Mountain Air-Line Highway Association.  This route was one hundred miles shorter than the Western Division of the Dixie Highway, connecting Cincinnati with Chattanooga through Somerset, Kentucky.  Attempts were made to include this route as part of the Dixie Highway association, but those attempts were rejected.

 

Travel a section of this route along the west side of Walden Ridge on the eastern edge of the Cumberland Plateau in this American Auto Trail video.  Explore the town of Oakdale and the city of Harriman while passing through Emory Gap.
