Written Directions

Hwy 62 runs from Rogers Arkansas over to Eureka Springs. The last seventeen miles between Gateway and Eureka Springs is the best. If you are coming from Missouri take hwy 37 south out of Monett MO. down thru Seligman MO. into Gateway then east on Hwy 62.

Scenery

This short stretch of road is before Eureka Springs Arkansas. It is one of the most scenic stretches of roads in all of northwest Arkansas - you won't be disappointed.

Drive Enjoyment

17 miles of curves and switch backs make this road a must for those in the area. They even have signs on some of the curves "BIKERS BEWARE".

Tourism Opportunities

Euerka Springs has become a gathering spot for bikers. With several "Bikers ONLY" hotels and leather shops it is a happening place for those of us on two wheels. Note: Eureka Springs has started cracking down on loud pipes, ticketing those ribbing their engines.

Highway 62 is a good ride but there are many much better just a stones throw off of highway 62. Be aware of LEO's and mind the speeds on turns.
The map makes note of a crackdown in Eureka on loud pipes. The police are now carrying decibel meters. If you drive on Spring Street and rap your pipes you will be ticketed. Ride as quietly as your bike permits.

I do need to clarify my first review. I was focused on that part of 62 between Gateway and Eureka Springs. Those parts of 62 leading to Gateway and then out of ES are great rides too. All things considered this is equal to almost any ride around Sturgis and the Hills. Rogers, ES, Berryville, Huntsville & Ozark have some of the nicest people you could ask to meet. We are planning to return.

A rude awakening for us flatlanders. Roadway was in good condition, but steeper grades and sharper curves than we were initially prepared for. Took a bit of adjustment except for the car/truck traffic this is a nice ride, but pay attention. Believe the posted speed limits for curves, which generally run out of one and into the next. Probably a bit more difficult than the "Pig Trail". Not a good run for inexperienced riders, in my opinion. We ran it three times in two days, once the initial surprise wore off. Between this and AR23 (the Pig Trail) the wife was more pleased with completing this ride.
