Start in Locust Grove, OK and head north on 82 (enjoy yourself for about the next 20 miles or so of winding roads). When you get to Langley turn left on to route 28 and end your route in Pensacola or Adair.
Drive through foliage tunnels, along side Lake Hudson, see open prairies with rolling hills in the distance. You'll also pass next to the Spavinaw Hill State Game Refuge and see its untapped beauty. You'll also be in the vicinity of Snowdale State park (Which sits next to Lake Hudson)
Update provided by OkieDawg in July of 2013: "This route crosses beautiful Lake Hudson near Locust Grove Ok then has sweeping turns to get you ready for the roller coaster that starts around mile 11. Then the road changes its personality completely to a roaring rip-snorter WOOHOO! the quality of the road is excellent especially for Oklahoma. With a smooth wide surface that is canted properly. The first time I road this route I was on a business trip with limited time. It was so much fun I went back and road it four more times before I ran out of time. I have ridden lots of great roads like the sisters in TX and Dragons Tail in NC and I would rate it better than the sisters and close to the tail. NO BS GREAT RIDE."
Lots and lots of twist and turns with a few hills thrown in. Great pavement not a pot hole one.
You won't be taking this route for the things to do along the way ... just gas up and ride!!
