Drew County Loop-Great River Road

This is an official route off the Great River Road National Scenic Byway.  The drive west through Drew County to Monticello, the county seat, gives travelers a clear picture of the transition from Delta lowlands to the upland timber country and Coastal Plains topography. This transition area is rich in swamps, bayous, cypress brakes, plains and forests, all reminiscent of the special natural beauty that once existed throughout the entire Delta region.
