The "Wise Donkey Landing" is an incredibly scenic ride with low or non-existent traffic for much of the route. While a few of the hills may have you climbing like a beast of burden, there is a nice balance of flatlands along river and creek beds.

Along this route, we have seen Red-Tailed Hawks, Blue Heron, Wild Turkey, Red Fox and other critters too numerous to mention.
