Written Directions

At the north end of the Pig Trail, take a right. Hwy 16 from Hwy 23 to Hwy 7 is an excellent ride.

Scenery

You'll see mountain streams, including the source of the White and Buffalo Rivers. There are mountaintop farms, mountain views and lots of rocks and trees. It's a beautiful ride with little traffic or people.

Drive Enjoyment

The road has lots of twisties and sweepers. You will not be bored.

Tourism Opportunities

There are no towns along this route, just a few mountain communities of less than 100 people. You may find a small country store with a soda machine and a stale candy bar. Bring your own eats and drinks.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

This is a great ride and is a good addition to your Pig Trail or Scenic 7 route.

Great road along the ridge of the Ozarks. Very little traffic and limited number of fuel stops available; also no premium fuel along this route so prepare appropriately and then enjoy the ride.

What a wonderful ride. This is like comparing the Cherohala Parkway to the Dragon/Deal's Gap. This is so much nicer than the connecting Pig Trail. Road surface is great, no traffic, super views, some nice open curves, great scenery. I could ride this every day.
