AL Hwy 25 DISTANCE: 20 miles TIME: 30 mins

This is truly one of the best motorcycle roads in Alabama, and one of the most exciting as far as the challenge. There's fantastic scenery and beautiful views crossing over the mountain, as you ride with river canyon overlooks and giant rock formations off to the side. This route connects between AL-411 and AL-231 just east of Birmingham. Riders can expect great sweeping turns and some dramatic hairpin turns, especially around Thomson Gap and Coosa Mountain. The pavement is also in good condition overall. Hone your technical skills as you ride through central Alabama's rural areas. While there's something to be said about riding the entire 257-mile State Highway 25, this section between Leeds and Vincent is the most exhilarating section. Best of all, it's off-limits to commercial vehicles.

Return:  Hwy 231 to Hwy 67 to I-65 to RHD
