Be prepared for multiple hills, narrow roads with a number of blind curves. I did this route on a summer Sunday afternoon. The traffic was fairly heavy with trucks/cars and trailers with boats and numerous motor cycle groups.
The road surface on D-32 (which starts and finishes this route) is in poor condition with cracks, potholes and uneven patch work.
The small towns you pass through are quaint and biker-friendly. Dexter is the hometown of actor Jeff Daniels. His Purple Rose Theater in here. the scenery on the route is nice but you don't have too many opportunities to appreciate it as you ride becasue of the road conditions and traffic. However, I enjoyed the ride to a from Hell.
Hell is an interesting place to start and finish but I wouldn't want to live there.
