Scenery

Some of the prettiest scenery in Arkansas, covers a variety of land types, some hilly and curvy through the climb out of the Arkansas River Valley to the flatness and lushness of the Arkansas River Valley, not like large fields that crops are planted. Goes by several waterways, backside of Lake Conway to glimpses of the River along the way to over the River and then back up beside Pinnacle Mountain and hilltop scenes near the tree farm outside Roland, and by the Ouachita Hiking Trail. The roads are pretty narrow, but not crowded. Scattered neighborhoods are well kept and very nice houses. Along Cantrell, there are several nice places to stop and eat (my favorite) Not a LONG trip, but very beautiful and I WILL be going again.

Drive Enjoyment

Roads are great, not a heavily trafficked area, but well kept.

Tourism Opportunities

Maumelle and Cantrell has the best options, once you get out of LR, the amenities stop until you get back to Conway.

Great ride. One of my favorites. I live in Mayflower so I do this road when I just want to go on a short evening ride.

The west side of this ride is a blast. Between the twisties and the rolling hills through the trees, this is a veritable roller coaster. It's a shame the rain kept me from really winding it out on this one. Even in the rain, it was still a good time.

I live in Conway, and have ridden this route several times. However, compared with roads up in the Ozarks, I can only give it a 3.
