Let's Ride!!!!!!


« on: October 02, 2019, 07:10:30 PM »

I'm leading a ride to Mt. Magazine.  This WILL be a long day of riding.  Some jumping off points if you wish to ride part of the way.  I encourage you if you do not want to go all the way to Mt Magazine, google the Cliff House Inn, just south of Jasper off HWY 7.  AMAZING place.   The pie is to die for.   I so wanted to work it in as a lunch stop on one of our rides but it just isn't doable.   At good shorter ride that would include the CLiff House would be ride down to Clarksville then take 123 back up to 7.  This gets you the Cliff House and the Arkansas Grand Canyon.   Jasper also has some cool shops to dive into for souvenirs etc.   The Ozark Cafe has a huge t shirt shop next door.



Have fun whatever you do!!!

I would really like to leave at 8am, location TBD


This is my prelim route in my head.  It will change over the next year, I'm sure.

Be aware once we are on the Mt Magazine ByWay be on the lookout for wildlife.  When Pete and I went up and down we saw, bears, an elk and a lot deer.  

Plans are simple, ride to Mt Magazine, eat at the lodge, see some of the overlooks in the park then ride back.   I will stop at the Arkansas Grand Canyon on the way back and POSSIBLY Jasper if time.

Hi Maggie;

  Looking this over I love riding up 309 and the top of the mountain is great, I was wondering if you might include Mt. Nebo  St. Park.  it would be a little detour close to Dardanelle.  Hwy 155 is one I haven''t ridden yet and it's supposed to be one of the top twisty roads in the state.  And an amazing view from the top.

Pete and I have been to top of Mt Nebo.  155 is nice just not sure if we can do both Mt Magazine and Nebo in same day especially with a lunch break.  It would make for an extra hour or so but it's something we can consider.
