Written Directions

This route starts at the intersection of Hwy 7 and Hwy 123 which is about 40 miles north of Russellville, AR in a town called Lurton, AR. From here take Hwy 123 northeast up to Mt Judea.

Scenery

The scenic is great if you get time to look. The switchback are around every corner. So many in fact, trucks are not allowed on this road!

Drive Enjoyment

There are more curves and switchbacks in these 15 miles. The views are great if you can take your eyes off the road long enough to look. Sorry no photos at this time, I was to busy scrapping my sideboards over the 15 miles of turns and, because they don't allow trucks on this road, the road is in great shape.

Tourism Opportunities

No amenities - just curves.

I had to laugh at those who gave the 123 low ratings to keep others away!....But that's not really fair on your fellow 'bikers is it?
(it's just not suitable for Harleys!)

This is a terrible ride. Don't bother. (I want to keep this one for myself and keep you out of state folks away. It's easily one of the best rides in the country)

We had six in our group, clearly enjoyed the curves and the steep roads. We have ridden the Deals Gap Tail of the Dragon and this is just as good of a ride, would highly recommened to anyone. This is not for beginners and speed demons. Very beautiful country, we will be back in the near future. safe riding to everyone.....
