Further south on US-27 are the following areas of interest:

Yahoo Falls

Yahoo Falls is an interesting and scenic area, but I can't reccommend it to motorcyclers. The last 1.5 miles of the 5.5-mile road to Yahoo Falls is gravel with some steep curves. While there, I saw a lady drop a Victory motorcycle in a steep curve on the gravels. She was not hurt, but several of us had to lift her bike. This is only for the experienced rider on gravel roads.
