We took this road on our way from Broken Bow up to the Talimena Trail. It was Awesome!!! This is a great ride and there is no traffic on this road, so you can go at your own pace. There are amazing curves and elevation changes. This is just as good as the Talimena Trail. It's a MUST RIDE!!!

I rode the Indian Highway this weekend 10/09/10 - 10/10/10. From 259 all the way up to Talihina, there was some debate over whether the lower half (from 144 to 259) was actually paved road. Well I'm happy to report that it is paved all the way through, and is a great ride, and a great addition for a trip to the Talimena Scenic Highway. Lots of nice curves and hills... on one side you have tall trees and forest, the other, nice views of distant valleys and mountains... It's pretty much all brand new pavement with the exception of about the last 4 miles on the 259 end.... we rode from 144 up to Talihina on Saturday, and then came back down 59/71 from Mena and caught the Indian Highway form 144 down to 259 on Sunday. Be careful of the final few turns when you come into Bethel, there was a pretty sharp turn, and a lot of loose gravel... but stay alert and you'll be alright... Great Ride!!!
