Barrington Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"Given the bustle of the surrounding suburban landscape, the rural character of this ride seems unlikely. As you encounter the oak-covered hills, sprawling marshlands, and farms mixed in with a scattering of often-palatial houses, you’ll find yourself congratulating the local residents who fought to preserve the area’s rural charm.Signs along the road indicate efforts to rid the area of invasive plants and restore the native landscape. Interrupting the savannas and wetlands are oak-and hickory-laden hills—some of which may prompt you to drop into the granny gear while climbing."
