Short fun 122 mile loop south of Harrison, AR includes AR-43, AR-74 from Ponca to Jasper, AR-7 S, AR-16, AR-21, and AR-103

This is a great shorter ride that includes some really fun roads.  We stopped for lunch at the Arkansas House Inn and Cafe in Jasper.  This cafe has sandwiches and salads and serves Elk burgers.  I had to get a picture of Jesus in a space suit hanging on the wall in the cafe.  Jesus_space_suit

This route has scenery of the Buffalo River plus curvy roads, another great ride in the Ozarks!  See the detailed route below:
