Decent surface with many easy sweeping corners.
A fun road that makes a nice day out as it takes in many small towns. If you want to get away from it all, this isn't for you.
Gentle sweepers with some smooth elevation changes through the forest, running nicely (as so many of the best roads do) alongside the river (albeit far below :-)), follow this up to East Hickory and join the 666.
Short rural stretch with some nice turns.
A few easy corners in this corner starved area.
