It then takes you to Parklake and out to the 519 intersection. A right turn will take you out to Highway 25, where it takes you left into Picture Butte, stopping at Koster’s Bakery. It then heads out of Picture Butte to the Highway 845 junction, turn left and head to Coaldale, stopping at the Coaldale Bakery.

When coming back into town from highway 4 you can get onto the scenic drive bike path. It will take you along scenic drive where you can navigate your way back to the Penny Coffee House.
