Very beautiful when the trees have leaves!!! Not just a flat ride... lots of hills.
The best road to really sweep through turns... 30mph turn ahead signs are in extreme abundance... Another great note is that this road is not frequently traveled, so you don't have to worry too much about traffic
Since it's only about 100 miles... gas is really the only thing you'd need anyway! There's a gas station or convenience store at every town you come to.
