The Valley River valley between Andrews and Murphy is broad and flat with towering mountains on either side. This fertile area is filled with farms. On this ride you'll pass horse farms, cattle farms and large corn fields as well as a small mountain airport. Starting at a convenient rest area on the eastern edge of Andrews, you'll pass right through this small town before heading out alongside the meandering Valley River. At the community of Marble, you'll cross over the river and to the other side of the four-lane to return. Points of interest: Valley River; downtown Andrews shops; Andrews/Murphy Airport; cattle and horse farms; big cornfields.
