Written Directions

Start in Edom, TX which is about 15 miles west of Tyler, TX. From Edom, simply head south on Route 314. The scenic part of Route 314 starts in Edom and travels south, ending at Route 315. Then continue on south on Route 315, which is also scenic into the ride's end point of Palestine. Note: You can also pick up 314 south off of I-20, but it does not get scenic until Edom.

Scenery

Mixture of heavily wooded, and rolling farm pastures. Keep an eye out for deer in the fall. This ride also passes by Lake Palestine.

Road Quality

Road surface very good. Very little traffic. Lots of slow sweepers and tighter turns, mixed in with nice east Texas hills

Roadside Amenities

Some roadside historical markers. Hwys. travel through a couple of small towns with gas stations. The route starts in Edom and ends in Palestine, and both have diners, etc. If you are looking for a short trip to plan around a breakfast or lunch run, this is great road.

This is a very nice short ride. I started taking Hwy 155 N. out of Palestine to Hwy 315. The ride on 315 is very nice. Lot of good curves and a lot of canopy road to ride on. Took Hwy 314 in to Edom. A lot of good curves and the road is in great shape. Always a good meal at The Shed in Edom.

This is a tree lined route through rolling hills which provide scenic views the whole way. In early spring the fields are covered with flowers and later in the summer green fields. In the winter the road surface is great for testing out the tires on the sport bike, hills and sweepers.

Fun ride! Lots of sweepers and some great straights that go over hills. Plenty of elevation changes and it does get tight through Ponroy. You'll see many other motorcyclists along this route, too. I live about 5 minutes from Edom, it's one of those small towns with a single blinking red light but has several "touristy" shops, events, etc and you can't go wrong with a meal at The Shed. I recommend this ride highly but just watch for slow farm traffic in the communities along the way.

I've lived in this area all my life and never really thought it to be all that great until i got my first motorcycle back when i was 17 and to this day i still love this route. Edom does have a gas station its east of town on hwy 279. if you want another good route close to palestine take {i think} fm 321 towards montalba and over towards tennesse colony this and other roads around this area make a good day ride.

My wife and I have been using this route on our annual East Texas Spring Fling and Wildflower Run with GWRRA Chapter Tx M out of Arlington Texas. If you go in early to mid April, be sure and turn right when you get to the loop around Palestine. Turn right at the first signal light and Davey Dogwood Park we be about a half mile on your left.

Keep in mind there are no gas stations till you get to Brownsboro,but continue on to Edom there's two great resturants to choose from the Shed and Edom bakery and other little neat shops.

I've started several times to recommend this road myself. It is a great ride. Lots of MC groups come over from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to eat at The Shed Cafe in Edom.
