The restricted areas are documented on FAA sectionals, the range map, and with a bit of work from the FAA archive data itself.

A friend strayed a bit into the restricted airspace near route 95. He got an A-10 greeting. I suspect they diverted whatever was nearby at the time. The plane came up on 121.5. The greeting was some wing rocking. For crossing a restricted zone, I'd call it polite. However, there are a few holes in the radar along route 95, so the USAF might err in their favor regarding the border. This was pre consumer GPSs.

If you google around, you should be able to find Tom Mahood's route around the ranges. They did it on a Sunday, so they flew over the TTR.
