We took 39 & 21 to Clarksville on the street bike, then went north on 123 & 7 back. The colors were still pretty good.

My son and I took a couple of our best riding buddies on a route he and I had ridden a few weeks before. Started off with breakfast in Republic, then down to Hurley, basically crossing back and forth over Flat Creek as much as possible, and then on to Cassville. From Cassville we rode in to Roaring River on the old Roaring River Road from the north, and then on down to Sugar Camp road and Butler Hollow down to 187, and eventually on in to Eureka Springs on 23. Fantastic ride and perfect temperature for dualsporting. It was a little dusty, but not near like it was this summer. There were some fantastic views along the way, and we were surprised at how much color there still was on the trees.

As usual when we're in Eureka, we dropped by the Arkansas Adventure Rider and shopped for a while, and BS'd with a few other ADV types who were out doing the same. We got home a little before dark, and my wife asked jokingly "was it the best day ever"? Got to say if it wasn't, it was pretty damn close.

I've got the route saved. If anyone wants the file, I'll post it up.

Rusty, I think the idea of a ride on Eldorado's route sounds great. I had other plans or I would have gone. If you can, PM me. I'd like to ask you about other routes, but I didn't want to detour the thread.

directions from ride

I rode the route on Saturday. It was a nice ride. I usually ride south of Granby into Arkansas, but it was a nice change. I am fairly certain the arrows are down now. I was riding with some other guys, and didn't really pay attention if we were keeping to the route, but it seemed like we did. Also, didn't measure these distances out on my high dollar DR 650 odometer.

Here's what the route sheet said...I can post a pic if necessary but the sheet was literally just the following:

Miles
0.3........East on Airport Drive (just north of Eldo Cycle)
2.8........Dirt
4.8........Intersection (Caution stop, no stop sign) you are coming off a hill and it comes up quick
5.9........Road...hard right onto 801
6.9........Left onto 450
8.2........Hard Left 925
10.3......Right HWY 39
10.9......Right 1001
11.........Left
11.2......striaght 300 across HWY 39 to dirt
12.........bridge
12.8.......right 220
14.1.......right1251
14.6.......Bridge
17.........Left HWY 39
19.6......Straight HWY N
22.5.......Left 1481
23.6.......left 500
24.1.......right 1425
25.5.......right
28.5.......Right HWY W
33.1.......Left HWY J
36.3.......Left HWY 54
42.1.......Right HWY K
44.1.......Left Dirt SW 778
45.2.......Left SW 301
46.4.......Right SW 401
48..........Left SW 650
49.5.......Left sw 477
52.2.......Right SW 900
54.5.......Right HWY 39
only going 1/4 mile back to dirt Left Turn on 50
56.8.......Right 150
