The Central Sperrins Scenic Driving Route is a one-way loop around the Sperrins, starting in Strabane.

From Central Strabane it takes the B85 across Strabane Bridge and then Melmount Road to meet the A5. South of Sion Mills it loops off the A5 for a short while, taking Seein Road and the B165. At Newtownstewart it takes the B46 to Gortin, the B48 across the Ownkillew River, Gorticashel Road, Drumlee Road, Lenagh Road and Killyclougher Road to the A505 at Mountfield. After following the A505 to Creggan Wood, it loops south to the B4 Carrickmore, taking minor roads there, and the B46. At the A505 at Creggan, the route continues north, taking the B46 to Greencastle, and then returns to Gorticashel Road along the Owenkillew River at Glenhull. At Scotch Town it heads north to the Glenelly River valley, heading east to cross the river at Mount Hamilton, then back west along the B47 to Plumbridge. At Plumbridge it takes the B48 north to Dunnamanagh, where it takes the B49 to the A5 just north of Strabane, before returning to the start in the town centre on the B72
