Start in Edom, TX which is about 15 miles west of Tyler, TX. From Edom, simply head south on Route 314. The scenic part of Route 314 starts in Edom and travels south, ending at Route 315. Then continue on south on Route 315, which is also scenic into the ride's end point of Palestine. Note: You can also pick up 314 south off of I-20, but it does not get scenic until Edom.
Mixture of heavily wooded, and rolling farm pastures. Keep an eye out for deer in the fall. This ride also passes by Lake Palestine.
Road surface very good. Very little traffic. Lots of slow sweepers and tighter turns, mixed in with nice east Texas hills
Some roadside historical markers. Hwys. travel through a couple of small towns with gas stations. The route starts in Edom and ends in Palestine, and both have diners, etc. If you are looking for a short trip to plan around a breakfast or lunch run, this is great road.
