Written Directions

You can start at Boxley, AR at the intersection of highways 21 and 43, then go east on 43 towards Ponca (this is the Boxley valley). Then go past Ponca about 5 miles and turn north (left) on Hwy-103. Your final destination will be at the intersection of Highways 103 and 412 in Osage, AR.

Scenery

After turning on Hwy-103, Kenner Creek creates a 15 mile-long valley, and the road/scenery rivals that of Boxley valley. Plenty of curves with beautiful scenery, plus a good road. I know the Boxley run is already listed on the map of great roads, but it's that stretch with the additional 15-20 miles from Ponca to Osage that makes this one, long gorgeous ride.

Drive Enjoyment

Road quality is good. The curves are a mixture of sweepers and twisties, but the twisties aren't extremely tight. The scenery is first-rate.

Tourism Opportunities

About the only roadside amenity is the town of Ponca, where there are cabins and basic food supplies. The nearest larger town is Jasper, about 15 miles from Ponca (take Hwy-74 east)

A scenic ride, more sweepers than twisties. The Boxley Valley section (from Ponca to Boxley) is really for slower, more scenic riding. While we always have to look out for deer in Arkansas, this is the only road where I had a small herd of elk come crashing down the hillside in front of me.

The description is accurate. Certain sections of the road left a bit to be desired, but the view is pretty and the twisties make for a good warm up. Getting stuck behind a car is the pits though.
