Rode the route in June 2020 from Cassville to Reed Springs (36 miles). For me, a backroad route from NW Arkansas to Branson. Reed Springs is about 10 miles from Branson West. The road is in great condition, but no shoulders. Lots to twisty sections, a few curves that can sneak up on you. Due to the up and down, a few curves are blind coming over a rise. New riders may need to slow down for some of the curves. May get behind someone pulling a boat or camping trailer that may take a while to pass. Most of the ride is through forest, so don't expect spectacular views. If you are coming from Reed Springs, Cape Fair is about 8 miles away. Nice view when you cross an arm of Table Road Lake. There is a quickstop in Cape Fair. When you come to the intersection of Hwy 39 South, there is a scenic overlook about 2 miles south that has a nice view over Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake. The town of Shell Knob is another mile. The Shell Knob Cafe is a small cafe a few blocks west off of Hwy 39. A burger and atmosphere. Shell Knob has gas, groceries, and a couple of restaurants. If you go across the bridge, there are a couple more eating places. Cassville has gas, fast food, restaurants, WalMart, etc.
