The East Sperrins Scenic Driving Route is a one-way loop around the Sperrins, starting in Moneymore.
The route begins by heading north along the A29 out of Moneymore, turning west at Desertmartin and taking unclassified roads via Slieve Gallion to meet the B40 just east of Draperstown. From Draperstown it takes the B47 and B162 to Lough Fea then unclassified roads through Sixtowns and Davagh Forest to Broughderg, where it does a strange figure-of-8, cannoning off itself in the middle. After heading along unclassified roads to Orritor, it heads south to meet the A505 and takes that road and the A29, through Cookstown, back to Moneymore
