DESCRIPTION: This route takes you on mostly very scenic and low-traffic back country roads. At mile 10.3, you arrive in the picturesque and historic village of Singers Glen, so called because of the Mennonite singing school that was founded there in the early 19th century. Many of the buildings in Singers Glen date from the middle-to-late 1800s.
