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.

Yet another awesome road courtesy of Arkansas. Lots of fun curves and twists in this route to keep you entertained, although sometimes the traffic can get a little heavy since it is the best and most efficient way to get through the area and therefore is traveled heavily. Watch out for "tar snakes" as you get into the curvier parts. The state came through and patched the cracks, not realizing how slippery that makes it for us. There are parts on fairly sharp curves where the bike will shake around underneath you because it is impossible to miss the tar. Not a problem for experienced riders, but just be aware of it.

The eastern half of this route (from Gateway to Eureka Springs) is always the first thing we see when we come to AR (and the last we see when we leave!). We can feel the stress melt away. The road is really nice. Not too challenging, but there are a few pretty tight turns as you near ES. The farther east you get, the more you start to see the big bluffs & valleys.
