Written Directions

From Ava, MO, take MO-5 for 2.3 miles north, then turn right onto MO-76. Follow the road for 43.8 miles, to the intersection with US 60, just west of Willow Springs, MO.


The route travels mostly along an east-west ridge located between two other larger east-west ridges in the Missouri Ozarks, offering some spectacular vistas of this part of the Ozarks on both sides of the route.

Drive Enjoyment

The road itself is a mix of rolled asphalt and chip-and-seal sections, with both having been used as patches, but is in fairly good shape (as is typical for MoDOT maintained rural highways). The route is curvy but not overly challenging, with a majority of the curves taken at the posted speed limit of 55 MPH, with nearly all of the remaining curves marked between 40 and 50 MPH.

Tourism Opportunities

There are no sites of note along the route, although both Ava and Willow Springs have a number of small shops and local restaurants.
