Heading South out of Fort Pierce, Florida, this designated Scenic Highway remains a two lane rural road for nearly the entire 19 mile length.
The turns are slightly sweeping and numerous.
Traffic is usually light, but always moves at a constant speed.
Mostly all of the single family homes that are built on this road are on the West side and are contained in the first few miles.
The East side of the highway is wide open to the scenic water vistas.
The road follows the Indian River Lagoon which is one of the most diverse wildlife places left in North America.
Along the route is, of course, Fort Pierce where there are a number of good restaurants, beginning with "The Tiki" on the water and "Cobb’s Landing".
(Overlooking a marina, but directly on the route.)
Both are "casual” and biker friendly, (as is Fort Pierce in general, who sponsors "bike night" every Thursday starting at 6:00 PM.)
From here it's 16 miles of the finest scenery that Florida has to offer.
Overhanging trees create a shaded road in the afternoon.
Walton road, (Mile 12) is the only intersection of concern on this route, (It "tee's" with this route, there’s a lot of incoming and exiting traffic from this road and there are limited sight lines for oncoming traffic.)
After Walton and before coming into Jensen Beach, the route becomes a little more challenging with rapid changes in elevation and direction (But, no big twisties) and in Jensen you'll find Mulligans Grill, directly "en route" and very biker friendly.
(Right around the corner is a number of very nice eateries, all "casual".)
Continuing on the Indian River Drive will take you into past "Shrimpers".
It's also on the water and is formerly "Frances Langford’s Inn" (A singing star from the forties... there’s good food and a lot of memorabilia from that era.)
Further on this route is the "Town of Sewall's Point."
It's the last two miles of the route.
It's very scenic, but very "restricted"! Observe the limits here!
From here you can turn right onto East Ocean Road and head into old Stuart, FL, or left to A1A and the Ocean.
