Start your route in Calico Rock located in north central Arkansas. Take Hwy 5 south and just past Allison you turn west on Hwy 14 towards the town the routes end point of Marshall, AR. Here I found the town full of canoes. Located need the Buffalo River the town has lots to offer natural lovers.
On this route you go thought the southeast corner of the Ozark National Forrest. Your likely to encounter some outstanding scenery on this short ride (located in the Ozark National Forest) in the Ozarks. This road is also listed on the National Scenic Byway web site.
The road isn't traveled that much by cars so you have the road to yourself. The roads are in good shape with plenty of turns.
Along the route you have Blanchard Springs Caverns. With two tours open to the public, it is one of Arkansas's best caves to see.
