The scenery is a bit choppy, with occasional "glorious vistas" but generally lightly developed farm and residential land on the sides of the road.

Road surfaces are good with just enough turns for an easy Sunday afternoon ride.

The roads in the nearby valleys have beautiful fall color views of Lookout Mountain and the other nearby mountains and ridges. It's worth traveling down those side roads just for the scenery. The side roads to the south are probably a bit better than the side roads to the north.

This is a great road for scenery and light traffic. I made this ride in 2010 along with a dozen other riders od various riding experience and wit everyone enjoying the view and no complaints about extreme curves. It is a trip I would take again.
