Written Directions

Take highway 24 out of manhattan, go north on highway 13(over the dam). Turn left on carnahan rd. and follow to HWY 16. Take a left (west) to randolph and take a left on 77 south back to manhattan.

Scenery

The route starts with a dam view of the entire lake. Once on carnahan road you will have a bunch of large rolling hills and moderate curves with some views of the lake. Followed by a drive over the mile long bridge with a view of the north end of the lake and a straight shot of open highway back to manhattan.

Drive Enjoyment

75% 5 rated highway. 20 mile stretch of 3-4 star due to farm use that may cause some debris on the roads with some curves.

Tourism Opportunities

You will go through 2 towns with gas stations and bars, the rest is open roads.

The description of the route is accurate. I enjoyed the ride. The best stretch is Carnahan Road on the east side of Tuttle Lake. Hwy 24 is busy with lots of traffic, Hwy 77 and Hwy 16 aren't as busy, but watch out for farm traffic. Road condition is good to excellent.
