Scenery

Often flat to rolling through some pretty north Texas countryside. Beautiful forests and grasslands near and in the National Grasslands.

Drive Enjoyment

Good pavement throughout with a few stops signs and very few stoplights in the small towns. Light traffic should be the rule. Some broad sweeping turns, a few tight twisties and some scenic straights in between.

Tourism Opportunities

Starting at Scotties restaurant in Paris. Very few amenities along this shortish 37 mile route. A few nice, scenic picnic spots along both Lake Crockett and Coffee Mill Lake. At the end it's a short hop onto US 82 and into Bonham with plenty of restaurants and fuel.
