I did the drive #11 shown below today, some areas are good and some areas are past peak or bare.
The Jerusalem area was certainly the best.

That is a good ride. You have a good mixture of back roads with different scenery. The only problem is you miss the 30 foot wooden gorilla hold up a full size VW Bug in Leicester.
