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.

We started a week of riding with this one. What a way to begin! I got on at the 374 junction and went south to 7 at Lurton. I agree with the others, this one is "must do". Full fall colors weren't quite there yet--a week or so early--but it was still beautiful. We rounded one corner in one of the hollers, and there stood a spike buck deer in the middle of the road. Awsome!! Just a watchout, especially this time of year. Road quality a 4-5 all the way through. Enjoy!

This is one of the overall nicest technical rides in the country. The curves on the north end are 10 mph curves. The rest of the route is just the normal beautiful scenery in the forested area here in Arkansas. Through in no trucks, little traffic, good pavement and there you have it.
