SR 111 ascends Walden Ridge on the east edge of the Cumberland Plateau, crosses the Falling Water River, then wends through the Sequatchie River Valley. Pull up to the overlook near Dunlap in the early morning for what may be the most enchanting view of the valley, as wisps of fog float through the trees while Walden Ridge rises protectively in the background.
