The route meanders through eastern Louisiana on county and state highways which are, for the most part, two-lane roads. After Tangipahoa, the countryside becomes hilly. Traffic picks up as the route enters Bogalusa. The Mississippi portion of this route is very rural and hilly. In Alabama, traffic gets busier as you near Mobile Bay.

Traffic increases tremendously as the route enters and goes through Pensacola. The route uses occasional rural roads and a state highway which parallels I-10 into Defuniak Springs. If the Mobile Bay Ferry is temporarily shut down, a route around the Bay through Mobile is an option.

Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
