Cloudland to Lookout Mtn with an RV??

Putting together final route and wondering about this area.
I need to go north from Cloudland Canyon SP GA for my next stop
in Tenn.

AAA has me backtrack to I59 but Google maps routes me up the
Lookout Mtn scenic hwy GA189 and across the river into downtown
Chattanooga TN.
Then north on US 27 towards Fall Creek Falls SP Tenn.

I kinda like the google route IF you guys think the Lookout Mtn Scenic Hwy
is do-able with a 25' trailer???

Here is a google link to the area in question--
Louisville, KY 40291 to Louisville, KY 40291 - Google Maps

Whaddya think???

We've been that road several times and it's doable. If you're not in a hurry and not traveling during high traffic times it won't be a problem at all.

Bama Rattler is right. Know that when at Cloudland Canyon, you are already on top of Lookout Mt... 189 has recent new macadam... curvy maybe... but mostly downhill. Even when you drop down to Chattanooga, it is very doable. Enjoy your trip.
