Okay, two questions...
Where is it?
Is it completely paved?

Looks like a nice ride.
I've learned the hard way to be skeptical of a non-paved road on the GTL. One soft, sandy spot, and it's done.

It's a Kentucky state highway about 10' wide and paved for the first time around 10 years ago. If two cars meet, someone is going to have to back up a long way. How they got those blacktop trucks up there I can't imangine.

Kinda looks like Blank Hill Rd in Alma.
Along with a host of other "double-letter" alphabet roads in SW Wisc.

I agree...some of the best vista's, ridges and coulees in the states.
I ride SW Wisc almost every Sunday during the riding season. There are so many excellent back roads that I never get tired of.
Here's a couple:
