Scenery

If you were looking at the scenery too much then you missed one of the turns. A lot of green, some hills, some water, some of just about everything that is up here.

Road Quality

Roads are average a lot of blind turns you have to watch for the farmers. Road quality typical for North Texas

Roadside Amenities

The route bypasses most little towns (Blue Ridge) is at the top of the tie - turn right rather than left on Co Rd 545. I did include 1 gas station as you turn unto 380 on your immediate right.

Additional Info
