Beautiful drive anytime of the year! lots of activities to do along the way!
I did this about 5 years ago. Some day I want to take Doug's advice and play along this route. Especially the hiking opportunities. I did a lot of hiking in this country about 40 years ago, but I don't even remember the trails now. I just remember beautiful forests and streams.
The 84 mile drive is gorgeous by itself; highly recommend in the fall in late October to see the fall color. Within that 84 mile drive is literally weeks of recreational opportunity. Camping, hiking, fishing, backpacking, water sports at Lake dardenale by russelville, caving, and so much more. great area.
