AR starts at the MS River Bridge at Helena, AR. The first 100 miles is the Mississippi River Delta Section. You’ll find gravel roads, some deep and loose as well as catfish pounds and rice fields.
This section is a flyaway for ducks and geese, coming down from Canada into a warmer climate. Be sure to stop at the TAT STOP Site, go for a visit, and sign in.
At the town of Beebee, you enter the “foothills” of the Ozark Mountains with some soft, rolling hills. On the west side of Clinton, AR you enter the Ozark National Forest with wonderful dirt based roads and beautiful forest. Soon, you’ll be in the community of Oark, AR with one country store and a gas pump. This is a must-stop! The food here is country cooking, with super hamburgers and wonderful desserts. Afterward, head back in the Ozarks as you approach White Rock Mountain. Take the Jeep road up to the top, then back down to the TAT. It’s a good overlook of the Mountains.
Then you set your sights on Warloop Road, a short section with a few downhill rock stair step areas. This section isn’t hard, but it will get your attention. People do live on the road, so please ride slowly and with respect. AR ends at the Oklahoma state line (Summers, AR).
