70w

I'm going from memory - but I think 70W from Hot Springs to Newport is mostly 2 lanes along the French Broad River. Basically - take the Madison County back roads north of Asheville to 63, climb Doggett, and get to 209. Then cruise to Hot Springs > Newport. Newport to Knoxville is the part I don't know about.

one leg

After Newport, from 92, take 139 Douglas Dam Rd instead of Asheville Hwy. That'll put you closer to town on Asheville Hwy and is a much nicer leg. Probably replaces 20 sucky miles w/ 25 very nice miles. Depending where in Knoxville you're going, you may not have to get on Asheville Hwy. Asheville Hwy isn't great, and there's a bit of 4 lane (divided) east of town.
