    Arkansas designated some dual sport routes and this one starts in Big Flat. I struggled making this gpx but I wanted to do this ride and didn't want to try it without. Did half of this ride today (had to fix a flat on the side of the road) and the route helped big time. Its not perfect (small details) but maybe it can help someone else. Btw there is a gas station close to the start, maybe a mile past (south) and my gps didn't show it. I'm using a montana 600t with central plains topo if anyone needs to know.

    I made this same GPX yesterday from the Arkansas riding book. Hoping to ride it this spring. Was it fun?

    I thought it was great although I've been there twice now and still haven't done the southernmost part.
    I found a video by accident on YouTube that shows the beginning.

    I would be nervous about doing that ride alone. If you had a mishap It would take a long time to receive help.

    The video must start near big flat. The paved section is push mountain road and I'm not so sure they turn on the right road off push mountain. My dad is a big Harley rider and he knew all about that road (paved) long before I did.

    I'm not familiar with either "Big Flat" or "Push mtn" Nate, do you have any road numbers for the start section to the end section?

    Push mtn. Is 341. I had to turn this into a GPS track to do it. Using a map I would have got lost.
