Written Directions

This route can be started in either Morehead or Louisa. Exit I-64 at Morehead. The Louisa end can be reached by US 23 that runs from Ashland to Pikeville.

Scenery

The views from the mountaintops are spectacular especially in the spring and the fall. In Lawrence County you ride beside Yatesville Lake.

Drive Enjoyment

These are mountain roads that are twisting thru the forests of Eastern Kentucky. The road is 2-lane blacktop. The road department keeps the surface repaired.

Tourism Opportunities

Morehead offers restaurants from fast food to steakhouses. Between Morehead and Louisa, Be sure and stop at B&C Market in Blaine. These are good folks that offer hot and cold food plus gas. Louisa has fast food and several very nice cafes. For a good set down meal try Lisa's Front Porch. There is a Super 8 in Louisa that is near the restaurants.

Rode this route in September 2011. Taking your time, it takes about an hour and forty five minutes from Louisa to Morehead. The road is in good condition and has plenty of curves. Lots of nice scenery including Yatesville Lake. Rode this on a Saturday and there was little traffic. Not too many gas stations along the way, but plenty in Louisa or Morehead. I would definitely recommend this route. It was a very enjoyable ride that I will positively do again.

I live in Lawrence County and close to this route and ride it pretty often. I have ridden it over the last 10 plus years 2 to 3 times a year maybe more. Highly recommend it for a good country ride, especially nice in the fall and spring. You can also make a bigger loop by adding St RT 3 from Louisa to Ashland, and hitting US 60 back to Grayson, lots of different ways to access and make it larger or smaller.

09/07/13...Rode part of this route, from Grayson to Sandy Hook to Louisa. Almost all new asphalt, no potholes, very light traffic. More bikes than cagers. Weather was beautiful, as was the scenery. Loved the twisties/switchbacks. Going back to get the rest of it, from Sandy Hook to Morehead. I think I found a new 'favorite' ride. If you are in the area, this is a MUST RIDE.
