From the South end, the route is easy to find as it starts in Wolcott, KS which is just outside the north west corner of I-435 (the freeway that that loops around Kansas City, KS). If you're trying to get to Wolcott from Kansas City just find where I-70 and I-435 intersect (on the Kansas side)and go North on I-435 to the State Route 5 (AKA K-5) exit (exit #18) which will put you in Wolcott, KS. Then proceed North on State Route 5 (AKA K-5). The first miles is in the river bottom and straight as an arrow then the fun begins! You find the North end of this route by taking US 73 hwy south out of Leavenworth, KS until you see the large Ford dealership at the corner of US 73 and Kansas State Route 5 (K-5). Proceed East and within 1/2 mile the fun begins!
There are trees overhanging the entire route which makes you feel like you are riding on a closed course ... you really don't have time to look at the Scenery as you are way too busy just enjoying the ride.
The road surface is in excellent condition and the corners are all well marked ranging from 25 MPH to 40 MPH. The entire route is nothing but twisties and small hills. It will really get and keep your attention!
The only thing along the way is Lakeside Speedway at the far Eastern end of the route and it is only open on Fridays in the Summer.
