Dogs were at a minimum; a few, but no big chasers.
Traffic was a little busy around Fayette; Sunday Church traffic. I imagine some of the highways would be busy during the week.
We rode the route clockwise. If you use the slider on the left side of the map, you can zoom in and see the road names. Double click on the map to center that spot. Click and drag the map in any direction. Let me know what you think of the Allsportgps.com site. I would like to use it or a similar tool to map and archive local rides.
Basically, though, the route is:
Coles Creek north to Hwy 552
West (left) toward Alcorn.
We rode through campus and came out the back road onto Hwy 552 aka Rodney Rd
right onto Russom Westside to Hwy 61
Russom Westside is the route the Union Army took into Port Gibson
Hwy 61 South (right) about 200 yards
Left on Woodvine to Hwy 552 (again)
Hwy 552 turns left, We turned right onto County Rd
Right on Harriston Rd to Harriston store (open on Sundays, clean)
Left out of Harriston to Fayette
Hwy 553 out of Fayette, across Hwy 61 to Trace
Back down to Coles Creek
62 miles, good roads, low traffic, few dogs, noticeably courteous drivers

Looks like a great route. It takes you through Fayette, then
Harriston, onto Redlick. After that I'm lost. What is the road that
runs from Redlick to the Windsor Ruins road? I drive that area quite
often with work, but I've only driven 552 from Redlick. The roads are
low traffic and pretty scenic too.
