Written Directions

Starting in Mountain View, AR go east on AR-14 for 8 Miles then turn left onto AR-58 E. Follow AR-58 E for about 18 miles then turn left onto AR-69 N. Follow AR-69 N for about 6 miles until you reach Melbourne. This 18 mile stretch of Hwy 58 is beautiful with lots of twists and turns and awesome views of the valley and mountains around.

Scenery

You can see the valley and White River below. And the road has several inclines and twists and turns.

Drive Enjoyment

The road is very curvy, with some very steep inclines. The pavement surface is great with some fairly fresh asphalt.

Tourism Opportunities

White river is along the route. The route is in the Ozark National Forest. Tommy's Famous Pizzeria has great food as well as Wing Shack-Cheeseburger Grill.

A nice easy ride. I didn't go all the way to Melbourne, instead on continuing on AR-58 to US-167. Nice scenery, and fun curves and hills.

Highway 58 is the best part of this route. Lots of fun sweepers mixed in with semi-technical curves, along with awesome elevation changes with views across the Ozark foothills. Add in Highway 9 heading west out of Melbourne to make a nice loop back into Mountain View.

many turns and elevation changes. This route should include 9 hwy back as it is a road that should not be missed in this area
