Scenery

South side of the River Hwy 224 runs right next to the Missouri River where you'll get some good views of the river flowing. Later the road scenery changes (when you get on Hwy 10 & 210) to mainly farm country and some nice easy riding.

Drive Enjoyment

Minimal potholes on this trip. There are not a lot of turns but some curves. Overall its mostly easy riding.

Tourism Opportunities

This whole area is historic from Lewis & Clark, The Battle of Lexington (Civil War), Santa Fe Trail, to name a few. Nice smaller cities/towns to do some shopping along the way too.
