To Hell and Back Professional Review and Guide

"They've heard it all, the people who live in Hell. Some call and ask how hot it is. Some call to find out when Hell freezes over. One couple came to Hell to get married on April Fool's Day. And yes, the road to Hell is paved. It's not easy finding Hell because people keep stealing the road signs.

This "Hellish" business supposedly began in 1850, when a businessman wanted to name the town after himself. The townspeople didn't like the idea, so he told them where to go; he also suggested that they could name the town that, too. And they did. The ride is anything but hell, with rolling hills, lakes, trees, farms, and the unique towns of Dexter and Chelsea."

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.
