This is what I call my 'Historic Ride'I start at Watkins Woolen Mill State Park and Historic Site -- the only fully equipped 19th Century Woolen Mill in America. From there, you go to downtown Liberty where you can find the Liberty Jail, Jesse James Bank Museum, etc.After that, it's on to the Truman Presidential Library & Museum in Independence.Backtracking just a little, we follow 24 and 224 highway along the Missouri River to Lexington where you find the Battle of Lexington State Historic Site and Anderson House.After that, it's on to Richmond where Alexander Doniphan stands outside the Ray County Courthouse. The Ray County Museum on W. Royle Street is one of the best small museums in Missouri.From Richmond, we'll take the backroads through Camden, Fleming and Orrick.Then on to Excelsior Springs for the Hall of Waters and Excelsior Springs Museum.Almost done, wind back through Excelsior Springs to the Watkins Mill State Park for camping, fishing and hiking.

Best Time to Go
I think 224 is one of the best rides in the kc area. Used to be so much better when The Peckerwood Club was open.

We ride those roads all the time. Beautiful scenery all year round. Watkins Mill is really beautiful in the fall.
