Written Directions

While this can be rode from either direction. You're better off starting in the town of Altus on State Highway 64.If you want to come from the other end, exit Interstate 40 at exit 41.

Scenery

You will be driving through Arkansas wine country. You'll climb and then descend a ridge just North of The Arkansas River. You will pass multiple vineyards that are beautiful during Summer. When you reach St. Mary's Church, take a moment to pull in and check out the view from the overlook. On a clear day you can see Mount Magazine as well as many others.

Drive Enjoyment

From Altus you will spend a few minutes climbing a fairly steep grade with hairpin turns. The road is not the best but you won't be going fast enough for the rough patches to be too much concern. The road gets better the further you go.

Tourism Opportunities

In Altus you will have gas and food. You'd be better off holding off your hunger until you get to Wiederkehr Restaurant. Stop by to eat or visit the vineyard's gift shop. Between Wiederkehr's and the lookout from St. Mary's church, this is a great ride.

Tough hairpins that turn into a peaceful ride through vineyards. The road can be rough but it's still a worthwhile ride.
