You gotta do the Pig Trail (AR-23)!

We didn’t get to ride the Pig Trail this year because rainy weather came in to the area so we left a day early.  We have ridden it in past years and it is great fun.  The road surface is in good condition and there are plenty of entertaining curves.  There is gas only at the beginning (Huntsville, AR) and end (around Ozark, AR) of the trail so plan accordingly. We have ridden the detailed route described below, but we didn’t ride it this year so be aware there may be changes.  The road can get some traffic with cars and large trucks; we were planning on riding it during the week thinking the traffic would be reduced but local riders may have a better idea of when to ride it.  We did ride AR-23 north of Huntsville in one of our other rides, and there is lots of traffic on that section of the road. The section north of Huntsville is not included in the route described below.   I do hope you get a chance to ride this road.
