Arkansas Trip Route "Push Mountain Road"

Push Mountain Road (AR-341)
Time required: Approx 20 minutes (not including stops)
Fuel availability: Big Flat, Fifty-Six and one station near north end of 341 (cash only and no guarantee of being open) Fifty-Six is best bet.
Food availability: Mt View, otherwise look for road-kill.
Roads: AR-341 is in no-mans land, going from nowhere to who cares. What it is though, is about the closest thing to a race track in the wild as you are going to find. Very nice, short sweepers that flow side to side. Road is generally in very good condition. Good road elevation changes. This is lumber land - watch for timber trucks pulling out of the woods. Very little traffic. You ride this road for a good reason, and everyone that lives in this region knows why as well, lol. Enjoy - but don't get in over your head!

This is one of my favorite Push Mountain Videos. This guy does it at a pretty good clip, This is northbound beginning at point A and going probably 1/2 way to 3/4 of the way to point B

Did you live or grow up in this region? You see what we like - feel free to add route threads (please copy/paste the format for continuity).

I lived there till I was 7 then moved to GA up until a couple of years ago. My dad rode bikes up there from the time he was 12 (not legally of course) until he was about 38 when we moved in '90, so he knows the roads a lot better than me, but I will see if he has some recommendations. I know Hwy 9 and 16 from Mt View to Clinton are pretty twisty, but those are the roads I travel most often when I am back there. Probably a bit more traffic though than the road thru fifty six and big flat. Btw if you want to check out some local attractions Blanchard Caverns is pretty neat if you havent already.been there.

That might be the best public-accessable cave there is in the USA. Been there several times.
