Toad Suck Run + ADD NEW ROUTE
- Trip Toolbox
Hwy 9 from Hwy 5 junction in south near Hot Springs to Perryville at junction of Hwy 60 and 9. We call it Toad Suck Run cause it was the road we took to get Toad Suck (from Wikipedia: "Toad Suck is an unincorporated community in Perry County, Arkansas, United States. It is the location of (or is the nearest community to) Bigelow Rosenwald School, which is located at the junction of Arkansas Highway 60 and Bethel AME Road and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The city was voted number one on the "most embarrassing or unfortunate US Town or Place Names" poll by findmypast.com." Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toad_Suck,_Arkansas
This route is a good road in that the scenery provides lots of forests with hills and curves, and is a logging road for local loggers. Used often by bicycle tours so the terrain is not too difficult or curvy, but enough to be fun and relaxing.
This road is a nice relaxing ride with good quality of pavement. Much of the road looks like a tan colored asphalt and not too bumpy.
There are small towns with small stores with as and food or drink. My favorite was a hold in the wall called Williams Junction where they have an old Coca Cola cold box and am old fashioned meat slicer where they can cut you a hunk of bologna and cheese fir a sandwich.
