NW Arkansas not NE. This is a 1300+ mile loop that I last rode in 2011. Lots of good stuff. Wooden Bridge at Beaver, Arkansas: Glade Top Trail (ride it if you haven't); Bull Shoals Ferry; Assumption Monestery (that sells the best brandy soaked fruit cake you have ever tasted); Gaston's Resort on the White River (cabins and food); six Old Grist Mills (eat at Dawt Mill if you can, river overlook restaurant); great little curvy road northeast of Mountain View, Ark; Oark, Ark restaurant (best little burger and milkshake place this side of heaven) to name a few. Jump on at any place you like. If you want to skip any part of this, skip the Southeast part of the loop. Flat and straight at this point.
