RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED to gain admittance to McCloud Mountain. Please call before making the trip!
PLEASE DO NOT use our telephone number to get GPS directions to the mountain, as we take reservations offsite.
From Knoxville, travel I-75 North to exit 134 (Caryville, La Follette, Jacksboro). From exit 134, travel east on Hwy 63 East for 8.2 miles to red light #9. At red light #9, turn left onto Hwy 25W toward Jellico. 4.8 miles up 25W (at the cutoff to the Duff community), you will see blue signs pointing right to McCloud Mountain. Our entrance is flanked with stone pillars and a black iron gate. Pull through the gates, and the restaurant is 2 miles at the top of the mountain.
From Jellico TN (I-75 exit 160) travel TN 9E/25W South toward La Follette for 17 miles. Approximately 300 feet past the railroad overpass is our entrance gate to the left (careful while crossing the northbound entrance to the Duff Community). Our entrance is flanked with stone pillars and a black iron gate. Pull through the gates, and the restaurant is 2 miles at the top of the mountain.
GPS Input- Because of our rural location, GPS units & mapping programs are not always reliable. We suggest inputting the longitude & latitude coordinates of our ENTRANCE GATE. Different GPS systems use different formats, so here are a couple of standard formats.
GPS Format 1: 36° 26' 6.70"N 84° 4' 43.30"W
GPS Format 2: 36.4352 -84.0787.
The following is a suggested address which can be used in Mapquest, and on several GPS models: 114 Duff Rd, Duff TN 37729. On most systems, this will put you at our gates (at the bottom entrance to the mountain). BUT... in Google it will send you way past our entrance. So be alert to the signage.
