Scenery

This trip will take you through some nice sweeping turns and mild elevations. LA 435 passes near the rear exit of Money Hill and there are lots of trees in places along the route. Depending on the time of day, some shade is provided by overhanging trees in certain spots. Mossy oaks can be spotted intermittently too.

Drive Enjoyment

The road condition is really nice and has a combination of flat, straight, hilly, and curves as well.Watch out for the sporadic roadkill though.

Tourism Opportunities

Along this route is several small country stores and a few fuel stations. Abita Springs has the most activity and there are several little cafe's to try as well. Mama D's pizza. It is a small "hole in the wall" with great sandwiches and darn good pizza. There is a pavilion next to the Abita Brew Pub with a nice courtyard next to it. There are activities held there on many weekends including musicians and a farmers market.

This is a nice loop. If you want to extend your ride, head up to Bush, then take Hwy 40 west to Folsom. Hwy 40 has a lot of hills and sweeping turns. Folsom has plenty food and gas. All Jason's Cycles if you need service. PEACE
