Shores Lake to Bobby Hopper Tunnel overpass

The below route is a "southern" ride out of Shores Lake up over Bobby Hopper Tunnel. There aren't many gravel E-W roads north of I-40 (and south of Shores lake), but we were able to find one section off of 215 that was pretty nice, gravel all the way to "Graphic Road". The other "New" section is for those that want to take a "different" route from the top (east) end of Warloop down to the south. Off of AR 348, take Lookout Tower Road, which becomes Ford Ridge Road (CR 1019). This is a narrow, but but relatively easy road. There is a low spot that always has water in it, but the bottom seems pretty solid. There was very little water in creeks around when we took the shot below, and this was pretty wet. Must be a spring.
