Scenic Drive – Sylvan Grove to Post Rock Scenic Byway

See stunning limestone structures on this seven-mile gravel route connecting Sylvan Grove to the Post Rock Scenic Byway.

From the intersection of Hwy 181 and Kiowa Dr (Old Hwy-18/North Street) in Sylvan Grove, drive west approximately three miles, and on the south side of the road you will pass the Gorge School, a one-room limestone schoolhouse. Continue west another mile to the WPA-era Wolf Creek Four-Arch Bridge built in 1935. To see the bridge’s four limestone arches, stop and park on the east end of the bridge and take a short walk down the ditch and creek bank at the northeast corner of the bridge. The ground can be uneven and slippery when wet so be careful. Do not cross any fence lines onto private property. Continue west one mile to pass the local Frederking family homestead with a two-story limestone house built in 1880.

The road becomes Beatty Road in Russell County before it connects to K-232, the Post Rock Scenic Byway. From here, turn north towards Lucas, or south towards Wilson and Wilson Lake, and keep your eyes peeled for the Faces in the Stone carvings by Fred Whitman along the Post Rock Scenic Byway.
