The ride takes about 1.5 hours. The first 30 min you will not see to much great stuff but nice area. The first 15 min will be a golf course, a large adult store, some car repair shops. The next 15 min will be a nice 2 lane road covered with trees and open land - but pretty straight. The last part of the 30 minutes you will pass thru sellerburg and turn onto indiana avenue. This is where the ride picks up. Nice turns in this 10 minute streatch and some farmland. Once you get onto 60 heading to borland you wil be on open land with some mom and pop shops along the way with some big houses. You will also pass Dean lake if you are up for a hike.

The best part of the ride is once you ge to 160 - about 50 minutes into the ride. there you will see a sign that reads beware of curves. This is great road. Lots of farmland, small churches, and plenty of turns. After about 30 minutes the farmland turns in to lots and lots of woods on each side of you. Best part of the ride. During this 10 min stretch there are places you can turn off to the side of the road to enjoy the view or take a pic or two. As you continue on you will reach Henryville. The road turns back into farmland and hills. Once your reach charlestown about 20 min later the ride turns into two lanes but the scenry is more houses than farms. After about 12 mintues of this you will turn down a country road and see more farms until the trip is over.
