Written Directions

From Columbia Miss. take Hwy 98 west to Hwy 587 take this Hwy all the way to Monticello.

Scenery

You'll like the scenery on this one. Its very hilly and woody!

Drive Enjoyment

The road quality is fair to good with plenty of elevated twisters ... too many to count.Be careful on this route there are a lot of blind turns there.

Tourism Opportunities

At the beginning you can stop off at Red Bluff and admire the scenery. You can also get something to eat in Columbia but I would wait till I got to Monticello as the fried catfish there is excellent.

I traveled north to red bluff from the coast on 43, then on to Red bluff. While there a bud and I climbed down to the river and found the old train wreck. Neat, three old train cars on their side by the Pearl river. Go right when you hit the tracks to see them on the curve. Nice ren, but didn't go to Montecello. Maybe next trip

Made the trip to Red Bluff yesterday and on up to Monticello. Nice ride. Some of the curves surprised me. It was a welcome change from all the flat roads I'm used to here in south MS.

Also beware of gravel and sandy patches in the low points of curves and at sideroads and driveways.
587 has been moved a few times because the bluff has been eroding it away. It is a must do ride if you are in the area.
