Written DirectionsThis 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.
SceneryThe 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 EnjoymentThere 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 OpportunitiesNo amenities - just curves.

Road quality was great, weather was great, some of the switchbacks were great with the tight turn, elevation changes etc. Tires got a workout and held up beautifully.
Definitely recommend this and be aware of others and don't get too cocky or you could be a hood ornament or a permanent fixture in the very cool rock walls lining the route.
I had a couple of oncoming cars in my lane on one of the 15 mph turns, so be aware and stay in your lane.
The view is stunning, when you can take a look. The ride is outstanding, so you won't regret missing any views.
I rode this heading north from 7, on a Thursday. Didn't stop in town, I just wanted to keep on riding. :)
