It clocks in at 3.8 miles, leading slowly downhill from the hills of the Mississippi Bluffs into the low-laying land of central southern IL. It has 2 concrete-bottomed low-water bridges that may turn into shallow crossings with heavy rain. The road has a very scenic feel, following Wolf Creek as it cuts into the hillsides and landscape paralleling the road. This also leads you to the Honey School/Tower Road.
