Both routes are quite scenic depending on what you want to see. 72 will take you around the outside with views of ocean, beaches and small islands on the eastern and southeastern shores while also catching glimpses of mountain ranges and highlands to the west with scenic overlooks and stops along the way. 61 will take you through the mountains and more forest areas with glimpses of waterfalls down rock walls and also offers lookouts and stops.
