One of the better motorcycling roads in Missouri…

Written Directions

Interstate 44 to Oak Gove Village Exit Missouri Route 185 South to Potosi, MO.

Scenery

Route 185 is mostly tree lined. It does cross the Meramec River and runs along ridge tops most of the way. It also passes through the Pea Ridge Conservation Area as well as Meramec State Park.

Drive Enjoyment

Good asphalt county roads in good condition. Little traffic. Great twisties, constant radius turns and big time elevation changes. One area is like a rollercoaster, up down, up down, up down. Great fun!

Tourism Opportunities

You're in the sticks riding this route. Not a lot of towns, restaurants but that translates into little traffic. It's 44 miles between Oak Grove Village and Potosi so fuel isn't a problem.

One of the better motorcycling roads in Missouri. A fun section by itself, it's also fun to figure out all the different ways to get to and from it.
