Written Directions

Start in Palestine, TX and head out of town, east on highway 323 for about 16 miles. Take a left on to route 294 for about 8 miles. Take a left on to route 23 and stay on that for about 13 miles. Now take a right on to route 343 and stay on that for 20 miles. Now take a left on to route 225 and stay on this about 28 miles till it drops you into Henderson.

Scenery

Nicely wooded farm country. You'll travel through heavy woods with rolling farmland along the way. This is a nice back area of Texas rarely seen except by locals. If you are looking for a less traveled, more scenic way to go from Palestine to Henderson (or points in between), this is a great ride. Hwy. 225 to Henderson, is probably the prettiest part of the route, but they all beat the dickens out of the standard highways: 79 and 84 .

Road Quality

Overall, roads are good, a few spots with rough topping, but nothing of any concern. Since they are back farm to market roads, they are not as well maintained as the state highways

Roadside Amenities

This route starts (or ends) in Palestine, with Rusk in the middle, and ends in Henderson. There are plenty of places for gas, food, etc.
