Oh My Goodness!
Just completed it during the peak of fall leaves.
It would be a great ride any time, but this time it was breathtaking.
Some of the curves wind around the edge of the mountain and are extremely tight.
We saw 3 or 4 vehicles traveling the same direction, but they yielded to us (very kind).
Traveled from Memphis and Mississippi for this ride and will do it again every year if possible.

AWESOME...continuous switchbacks and elevation changes similar to the 'Tail of the Dragon', only the switchbacks are NOT banked as much.
Still, like the Dragon better but this road is excellent!!
Even has a fairly long one lane bridge.
You're passing thru the Piney Creek Wildlife Management Area.

Started this ride from AR-164.
Rode this ride with Fred Lett my neighbor.
Enjoyed this road very much.
This road had very lite traffic on it.
Great curves and sweepers and tight turns.
This road is a must for those who want to ride curves and more curves.
We finished up at Pelsor Arkansas at Highway 7 and AR 123.

We were guided to this stretch of road by a couple from Eureka Springs who recommended it for the hair pin turns and it lived up to the recommendation.
The road sign warns trucks to stay away due to 'impassable hairpin turns'.
Better than the Pig Tail because there is much less traffic, but come prepared with plenty of gas.
There's nothing near there.

This is my favorite road.
We ride 2.5 hrs just to enjoy this stretch of asphalt.
Has it all, great pavement, low traffic, scenery, what more could you need. A+

Of all the roads in the area, this was the most memorable.
123 has everything going on.
You'll get your monies worth from your tires on this road.
Road gets tighter near Mount Judea.
