The road proceeded north from Augusta to Spring Place, Georgia, where it divided. Federal Road proceeded northeast to Tellico Blockhouse. Georgia Road proceeded northwest to the Stone’s River where it connected to the road to Nashville. The Cherokee later constructed an alternate route north of Lookout Mountain.
