The sweepers here are laaaaazy, and not really that great. I mean the whole route is 'okay' as a 'get out to ride' type of thing, but nothing that I can imagine anyone would be excited to ride on.

Just...not worth the time. Sorry. (Even on a cruiser or tourer.)

Very nice combination of good curves, decent surface and nice surroundings.

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.
