Written Directions

From Vidalia LA, take LA Route 131 South along the Mississippi River. Continue south on LA Route 15 for 55 miles to the end of the run at LA Route 1 in Lettsworth, LA.

Scenery

You will find yourself riding atop the Mississippi River Levee for quite a span. The left will be the river batture. In south LA the area between the levee and the river is called the Batture. Being elevated by the levee, the view to the right is miles of symmetrically planted agricultural crops...as far as the eye can see. Later you will cross the Old River Control Structures which is the head of the Atchafalaya Basin.

Drive Enjoyment

This road has long straight sections and some sweeping turns. There are also very sharp turns that are well marked with low speed limits....Believe them when they say 30 mph....or you'll be in a corn field.The road surface is mostly smooth with a few moderate rough sections.

Tourism Opportunities

There is nothing but road from Vidalia to LA 1. No Amenities at all.
