Written Directions

Just start in the town of Elkins, AR and head east on Hwy 74 all the way Jasper. See online map.

Scenery

This takes you thru some of Arkansas best scenery. Boxley Valley is one of the few place where Elk herd can be seen in Arkansas. A real treat for the eyes and a 5 becauese of the wildlife and scenery you'll see along the way!

Drive Enjoyment

There are lots of gentle curves and some hills. The roads are old but they are still in good shape. There isn't much traffic most of the time.

Tourism Opportunities

Not alot in the amenities on this ride. Jasper has some good places to eat. You can get an Elk burger here! Along this route you'll also pass by or through 2 wilderness areas (Upper Buffalo Wilderness Area and Ponca Wilderness Area) and 1 state park - Lost Valley Ponca State Park.

This road is best ridden slower for the scenery, not the curves. It's a very scenic area, plus you'll have other drivers slowing down to watch for elk. Note: many of the farms in Boxley Valley have been in their respective families for over 200 years.

This road is a lot of fun, with most of the technical stuff on the east side of the run. The scenery is absolutely stunning, and it changes with perfect pace to keep you from getting bored. The major downside is that the road quality, while pristine for the most part, apparently has a bit of a risk of washing away. It had rained the week I was out there, and there was a section of road completely missing, which was viewable in my video.
