It immediately crosses a bridge over the Tellico River to leave Tellico Plains and wind its through mix of farmland and wooded areas as Ballplay Road. The highway then passes through a section of the Unicoi Mountains before passing through the community of Ballplay, where it makes a sharp right turn onto the Unicoi Turnpike. SR 360 continues to wind its way north through mountains to cross a section of Tellico Lake before turning northwest to pass through the community of Toqua and by various marinas along the banks of the lake. It then crosses a Causeway over the lake to pass along an island, where it passes by Fort Loudoun State Park and the Seqouyah Birthplace Museum.
