Monticello Crossroads Scenic Byway

28.79 miles - Allow at least one hour for driving and a visit in Monticello

Pine forests and rolling pastures dominate the views along the Monticello Crossroads Scenic Byway as it runs through Jasper County. This 29-mile byway emphasizes the rural and historic qualities of the area as it follows State Highways 11 and 83 heading north from the town of Monticello. Native Americans, as well as evangelical Methodist Circuit Riders, once used these routes as they crossed the state. Highway 83 was also part of the Seven Island Stagecoach Road that ran from Augusta to New Orleans and the Natchez Trace. Several individual structures as well as the central business district of Monticello have been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
