Written Directions

Written directions: The starting point for this route is in the town of Vienna, MO. You can find Vienna by following 63 north out of Rolla, MO. The path is very easy to follow as all you do is start in Vienna and follow HWY 42 west to Belle, MO.

Scenery

Everything from open fields to deciduous woods - neat Streams, farms, a small one-lane bridge...

Drive Enjoyment

Very fine roads, but there isn't much of a shoulder to speak of for most of the way. Most of the turns are labeled with those yellow advisory signs for 35-45 mph, with the occasional 20 or 25 mph curve. Smooth pavement, not many houses, and little traffic make this a nice road for a spirited romp.

Tourism Opportunities

Maggie's Cafe in Vienna is very nice - good "mom and pop" quality with very fair prices. Belle has a little more selection, but I have chosen to eat at Maggie's both times I've stopped in this area. The cafe is on the southwestern corner of the intersection of HWYs 63 and 42.

There's a nice-looking RV site about 3-4 miles west of Vienna that is situated on a river - looks like a good tubing/rafting site for relief from the midsummer heat, though I've never stopped by.

Good ride, nice curves throughout the 16-17 miles. Took quite a bit of time to get to it since we live north of Jefferson City. Hwy 28 is not near as nice a road as 42, but luckily we didn't have to stay on it too long out of Belle. Great scenery, will go back with camera so wife can take pictures of the historical features.

I've traveled along this route many times, it is the way I take to the Lake of the Ozarks. It has some nice long curves in it and some shorter ones also, the road is will maintained. Great views in the fall when the leaves turn.
