You'll see a couple one lane bridges and features a picturesque Covered Bridge.
Pavement is good, watch for loose gravel and watch loose buckeyes in the fall. Scenery is nice farms and valley views from a top of the ridge. I have been on Rt. 231 and I have had a hawk follow me on it as I was cascading from a top the ridge to the valley and back up and down and up again , too cool.
I recommend it to the Sport riders, not so much for the Cruisers. I dragged a buddy of mine on a Harley Sportster he was scrapping pegs, wasn't too thrilled.
The route is tight and technical with over seven 15 mph hairpin turns! Pavement is good, watch for loose gravel and watch loose buckeyes in the fall.
You're pretty much on your own with this one. But the Exxon is a good, and busy gas station with a convenience store. Just off the Interstate so it is easy access.
