Take I-40 West from Nashville to exit 143, Linden-Waverly. Turn left (south) across the bridge and travel south on Hwy. 13 for about 35 miles to Flatwoods.
Take I-40 east to the Law Road exit (152 South). Go approximately one miles to U.S. 412. Turn left and go east through Lexington, Parsons and Linden. At the four-way stop in Linden, turn right onto Tenn. 13 south. Travel 12 miles on TN Hwy 13 into Flatwoods.
Nearing Flatwoods (from the north) you'll cross the Buffalo River on a blue or green bridge. (short term memory gone to hell) After crossing the Buffalo River, continue probably a mile or less and turn right by a large old wooden store. I believe there is an old sign for Tippencanoe on the corner.
There was an old Buffalo River Canoe Rental on the right there, about one mile on the right I don't know if anyone has it open now or not. Slink Shoals is only a couple of miles down the paved road, look for a wide dirt and gravel road on the right where the pavement ends.
