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 took a ride up the Dragon on March 12, 2011. This was probably mythird time on this road. Unfortunately, The Dragon bit me this time. I didn't respect it and I ended up going wide on one of the curves. But, when I am able to physically and mentally get back on my bike, I will definately go back and complete this ride. This is a great road to ride and I love it. Do your

Definately better than riding the Tail of the Dragon. Started from the North and took it south and the Hair pin turns were thrilling to start the ride and it just continued the keep the thrills coming as you just going into turn after turn. The scenery was great as we did it in October and the colors were starting to pop. Would definetly recommend this ride.
