Written Directions

From the intersection of HWY23 and HWY62 in Eureka Springs, head east on HWY62 for about 2 miles until you come to Rockhouse Road on the right. Take Rockhouse Road south about 7 miles until you get to HWY221. Take a left on HWY221 and head northeast to Berryville, rinse and then repeat!

Scenery

Immediately upon accessing HWY 221 from Rockhouse Road (CR302), when traveling from Eureka Springs to Berryville, one drops immediately into the Kings River valley and then climbs up onto the Ozark Plateau. The views of the river are fantastic if one cares to slow the pace down but the curves begin immediately upon crossing the Kings River bridge and don't let up for almost 10 miles as one climbs up through the foothills of the Ozarks. Although some of the views are absolutely beautiful, you will be more focused on the road!

Drive Enjoyment

HWY221 itself is a short, 10 mile stretch, of twisty road between Eureka Springs and Berryville, AR varying changes in elevation. HWY221 is a road that doesn't seem to go anywhere in particular and seems to have been created by someone who loves motorcycles as an alternate route between Eureka Springs and Berryville. That being the case, the road in in great condition with only occasional patching in spots.

Tourism Opportunities

As stated previously, HWY221 doesn't go anywhere in particular therefore there are no amenities on this route.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

HWY221 is an exceptional way to either start or end a great day of riding in the Eureka Springs area.

We rode the scenic route from Hot Springs to Eureka Springs. We took this route to end our day and it was well worth it. We loved driving through the tunnel of trees.

This road has some incredible views. Pavement is mixed quality, but it is still worth a ride. This is some Arkansas countryside at its finest.
