General Route Description

These short loops lie on the rolling karst terrain, as seen in the photo, between Flat Top Mountain and the Second Creek drainage. Though you cannot call the terrain flat, there are no long climbs on these short loops. They can be done separately or in combination. Co. 5 (Monroe) and Co. 43 (Greerbrier) is a two lane striped road. The others are one lane country roads. County 43/2 and 5/2 are tire and chip surfaces with some sketchy sections but you want to take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery. County 43/2 and 5/2 also have the most rolling terrain as it skirts the foot of Flat Top Mountain.
