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.

Highway 21/74 is great road to ride through the Boxley valley area. I particular like the area where highway 21 north drops down into Boxley Valley, great scenery all along the way. Don't forget to take highway 74 east from Ponca to Jasper, very good road and great scenery. Be careful the first couple of miles out of Ponca, very technical with lots of tight curves, watch the oncoming traffic.

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.

From beginning to end, you won't be disappointed. Although I never got bored, some of it is less boring than other parts if you know what I mean. The elk were there even at 11:00am on the day we rode through Boxley valley. Very enjoyable run.
