AR Pig Trail

Riding up on a street bike next Tuesday June 2-3, looks like the Pig Trail is closed north of Cass with a landslide.

Would anyone know if that is covering only part of the road and a MC could still get by?

There was an article in the paper last week and it had pics of motorcycles and a few cars going around it. It appears that one lane is still open, but I don't know for how long.

Was there last Saturday. They had patched the road and had One lane open to local traffic. You should be ok unless they have torn into it .

That is Great news, it was going to mess up my plans if I couldn't pass through there but I was hoping someone from around the area or heard something could give some better intel.

Next week looks to be some drier weather in the area.

That idrive website is showing NOTHING on 23 Doc.

It seems like a nice website, for I40 and such, but I question its value for smaller roads.

TLRam1, please post up what you find on 23, I plan to be down there soon.

And if you need any parts for that water buffalo while you're in the area, lemme know. I'm parting out a '74.

What section is the better part of the Pig Trail.

My plans were to stay in Ozark, than take 23 up to Eureka Springs.

1. Does anyone know a better idea where the problem is?

2. Is there a way to jump on 23 past the issue?

3. Or go to E. Springs a different way and come back down 23 until I have to get off, is there a way to do that?

4. I will probably try something to incorporate the Pig Trail if possible.

5. Does someone live close by to bail me out from sliding down the side of the road. Hopefully I am kidding here.

I am on a street bike so I am limited.

SoMO has some pretty good roads too you know...south of Branson and east of Branson and yet fairly close enough to ES..also out of ES, hwy 62 east to hwy 103 south thru Osage..there is the Peel Ferry north east of Harrison that is a cool ride into MO across Bull Shoals lake...pig trail is ok, but I think there are better roads around..sumthin to think abt
