    I took a little trip this weekend and did the Huntsville to Oark ride with the NW Arkansas guys. It was a great trip.
    I just finished cleaning up the GPX file for the trip.
    I started the log at Hector, and it finishes at Bono Ar West of Greenbrier.
    Look close as theres two places I had to back track due to creeks to deep to cross.
    This won't be a problem in the summer months.
    The link to my report is in my sig below.
    Hope someone else finds it useful.

    If the dead ends are avoided this track can be done on most any ADV bike. Knobbies are not really needed. I did it in an old XT550 and Trials Tires.

    Hector-via scenic route-Jasper-Huntsville-Oark-Hector again, then back towards Conway via the back roads.

    WEll I tried to use the attached gpx file to generate a jpg of it and it failed so I composed a new file. I didn't see the option to delete the attachment and reload it.
    Heres what it looks like plotted out on a map.

    I generated this topo map from the gpx file so maybe it will work for others too now.

    That looks mighty good, I saved your first file and it worked fine for me. :thumb I was down there a month ago and turned back at the Big Piney x-ing also. :D

    EDIT: Do you know what kind of mine the Dare Mine is? N35 37.606 W93 05.641

    I have no idea, I've seen the reference on topo map, but thats it. :cry
    I know there was alot of lead mining East of Harrison.

    I'll ask some friends if they know, or where to find actual mine.
