Duck Nest Motorway is a cozy forested road from the Cheaha State Park north towards Oxford, AL. Not heavily used, this easy, graded gravel road is a quick and peaceful route when leaving the Talladega National Forest. Duck Nest Motorway becomes Kentucky Road at the National Forest boundary, traversing a quaint rural neighborhood. The only camping available is at the Duck Nest Hunt Camp near the edge of the forest boundary. In the Talladega National Forest, a hunter's camp is a designated primitive camping zone with dispersed camping in the designated area.

An eight-foot culvert is used under Duck Nest Road where it crosses Salt Creek. Although the creek is little more than a babbling brook, heavy rains have washed out this culvert, causing the road to be closed in the past.
