Boston and Ozark Mountains
The rugged and forested Boston Mountains region of the Arkansas Ozark Mountains
provides the setting for the Pig Trail, which often runs through a
tunnel of foliage during spring, summer and fall. Spring wildflowers and
brilliant autumn foliage make the scenic route especially popular
during those seasons of the year – whether you ride or drive. The route crosses the Mulberry River and the 165-mile
Ozark Highlands Trail.
ROUTE: To get to the Arkansas Pig Trail Scenic Byway, take Ark. 23 from the south boundary of the Ozark National Forest
through Franklin County to its intersection with Ark. 16 at Brashears in Madison County.
LENGTH: 19 miles.
THINGS TO KNOW:
Shopping, lodging and dining are available in Ozark near
the southern end of the Pig Trail and Fayetteville to the northwest. Just a short distance away is America’s Victorian Village, Eureka Springs, where scores of restaurants, shops, lodging facilities and attractions are definitely worth a visit. This motorcycle-friendly town always has something going on. Cabins and camping are available on the byway at Turner Bend and nearby at the White Rock Mountain Recreation Area, which offers dramatic views of the surrounding Ozarks from atop the 2,260-foot peak. Other Ozark National Forest campgrounds in the area are Shores Lake and Redding.
