water access has kept the communities on the Plateau from becoming as populated as other parts of the Byway.
Past Jamestown, the Byway begins to wind back down the Western Plateau Escarpment through Pall Mall, the home of famed World War I soldier Alvin C. York.
As you pass into the Highland Rim, scenic views are abundant, with expansive panoramic views into the grassy farmland that leads you up to Static, Tennessee, and back down through Byrdstown — where Dale Hollow Lake provides ample recreational opportunity for Byway travelers and local residents alike — and into Livingston. Finally, you travel back north into Celina, where the Cumberland and Obey rivers converge.
The various ecoregions along the Cumberland Byway provide for a wide variety of experiences as travelers pass through, making for quite the interesting journey through the North Cumberland region of Tennessee.
