Cross Creek is one of my favorite spots.
When you leave you basicly have 3 choices Any other way and you are going to be on some serious twisties! (Think "Bluebirds on the Dragon!")
Take 19 to 276 to I-40 and go east to Asheville (then 26 to 81)
Take 19 to 276 to I-40 and go west to Knoxville (Then 75)
Take 19 to 276 (The other way toward Waynesville) to 74. Follow "64 Truck" to Franklin or Murphy. Both have great campgrounds.

If you take option 2 I have heard that you can cut off some miles and avoid Knoxville by taking 32 and Cumbeland Gap Parkway. You get on it in Newport and it takes you all the way to Corbin KY. I have never traveled this route. I like back roads but have always just run 40 to 75 when headed north from Maggie
