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.

This a nice ride on the 9th day of my 48 state solo ride. I road it West to East, staying the night before in Harrison, before picking up the ride in Marshall. The road was curvy, but not tight, so I just cruised along and enjoyed the beautiful lush rolling hills and creeks. I really enjoyed some of the rustic old abandoned homes and rock formations that made for great picture settings. The ride meanders along Sylamore Creek at the south end of the Ozark National Forest. This only received a 4, instead of a 5, because I road over 25 rides during this trip, they can't all be 5's ;) Definitely take this ride, and stop in Calico Rock at the soda fountain for a refreshment.

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.

The pavement is fairly decent, and even though I got stuck behind a few cars, a few of them pulled over to let me scream by. I was able to fully wind my bike out and work off my chicken strips. Coupled with the beautiful scenery, and this road is on my "must ride" lists.
