Just south of the route terminus in Hill City, as you head toward Shell Knob, is a scenic overlook (at the end of a short gravel drive) that gives a really nice view of one of the valleys that leads into Table Rock Lake.
The road is well maintained asphalt throughout the length. The route is curvy without being overly technical, with a variety of recommended curve speeds from 30 to 55 MPH, and flows through curves and hills in nice combinations, with no long straight sections.
