Written Directions

Really easy to describe and find ... just get yourself to Sparta, MO (about 20 miles southeast of Springfield). From Sparta take State Route 125 south all the way into Yellville, Arkansas ... about 60 beautiful miles.

Scenery

The many hills of the Ozarks, as well as the wide variety of vegetation, makes this a really enjoyable ride. Travels a good bit through the Mark Twain National Forest. This is one ride not to be missed!

Drive Enjoyment

Many, Many twists and curves, in what is surely one of the best roads in the Ozarks. Certainly one of the local favorites for a great time enjoying the local roads and hills. Continuing into Arkansas will bring you to an old ferry which will take you across Bull Shoals Lake. Offers a great chance to stop and rest.

Tourism Opportunities

Several small towns along the way provide an opportunity to stop and grab a beverage or a bite to eat. This is not the main reason to travel this route.

Fantastic ride. Brand new black top for about 30 miles of this trip. The rest of the roads are in great shape. I had very little traffic wrecking it for me. Everything you want from a ride. Great scenery, nice snaky roads, hills, vistas. When you thought about buying a bike and just tooling through the country, this is what you were imagining.

Top 10 road I've been on. I love me some twisties and this road had them for sure. Not as sharp of curves as Deal's Gap (Tail of the Dragon) in Tennessee/S. Carolina, but at the very least comparable. And a free ferry ride!? Nothing much better. If you are in the Arkansas/ Missouri area, take detour to 125.

get your gas, drinks and potty breaks before leaving Sparta. There are no towns in between Sparta and Yellville that have gas stations
