As you head North West you will be entranced with the beauty of the surrounding area and the twists and turns of the road. As you make your way around, a point of interest can be the Monte Sano State Park and you will need a detour off the route to make it there as there are no shortcuts to it from Dug Hill Road. After this 3 hour ride you can cool off by Guntersville Lake just East of Grant.
