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.

Pavement was almost flawless. I picked the wrong time of year, and it rained on me the whole time. Even so, it didn't detract too much from the beautiful scenery, and between the sweepers and the cagers, I had plenty of time to take in the view. There's a few tight sections, but since this is a somewhat important highway, there is a fair amount of traffic. Odds are that you'll be stuck behind somebody before you ever really get to twist the wrist through them.
