Written Directions

Start your route in Calico Rock located in north central Arkansas. Take Hwy 5 south and just past Allison you turn west on Hwy 14 towards the town the routes end point of Marshall, AR. Here I found the town full of canoes. Located need the Buffalo River the town has lots to offer natural lovers.

Scenery

On this route you go thought the southeast corner of the Ozark National Forrest. Your likely to encounter some outstanding scenery on this short ride (located in the Ozark National Forest) in the Ozarks. This road is also listed on the National Scenic Byway web site.

Drive Enjoyment

The road isn't traveled that much by cars so you have the road to yourself. The roads are in good shape with plenty of turns.

Tourism Opportunities

Along the route you have Blanchard Springs Caverns. With two tours open to the public, it is one of Arkansas's best caves to see.

Road quality is great, and it meanders quite a bit. The few times I got stuck behind cagers, they were generally nice enough to move over and slow down to let me by. Easily one of the most fun rides of my trip through the Ozarks.

Agree with the author on the ride. Just don't miss out on other great roads that intersect this one. Just like Jasper is a hub for great roads in the central Ozarks, the Allison/Sylamore area (intersection of highways-5, 9, &14) is a hub for roads in the eastern Ozarks. At this intersection you can go east on AR-9, north on AR-5, west on AR-14, or 5 miles south to Mountain View, where those three highways split once again. At Mountain View, the best road for twisties is to continue on AR-9 south to Clinton.
