Pinnacle Mountain/Greers Ferry Loop

Route Description

ROUTE #19: One of Central Arkansas’s most popular local motorcycle rides

This great bike ride begins in Little Rock, extends to Heber Springs and Greers Ferry, then circles back to Pinnacle Mountain State Park. The length of the trip: 225 miles; for planning purposes, the time should be about 5 hours.

US 67 is a fairly pedestrian run from Little Rock to Cabot, but, once you hit State Highway 5 the rest of the loop is a very enjoyable and relaxing ride. Take the scenic roads AR 5 north to AR 25 in Heber Springs, then on this local motorcycle ride, you will travel through the little town of Drasco. Next, you'll take AR 92. 

AR 92 continues past Greers Ferry Dam, the site of the last major public appearance of John F. Kennedy prior to his assassination. Kennedy dedicated the lake and dam on October 3, 1963, prior to his fateful trip to Dallas on November 22 of that year. A stop at the dam overlook is worth the time. 


AR 92 continues through the Ozarks, lined by pastures and dense woodlands. The road is winding and not technically difficult. At the junction with AR 16, you are in the Greers Ferry Lake area. The two state highways cross the lake at a spot aptly named The Narrows. 

From there, head west to AR 16 toward Fairfield Bay and continue west to Clinton. Take US 65 south to AR 114 and back to AR 92. Continue to travel south toward Morrilton and into the Arkansas River Valley. Just past Morrilton, you will continue onto AR 9 and cross over the Arkansas River. At Perry, AR 9 splits into AR 10. 

Pinnacle Mountain State Park is situated on AR 300 just off AR 10/Cantrell Road. AR 300 is a very winding route through the Ouachita foothills. 

Eastern AR 10 winds its way through heavy woodlands though it is still mostly flat. A vestigial 980-foot peak rises above the highway in the Arkansas River Valley. Pinnacle Mountain's lofty views make it a popular destination.

Before I-40, AR 10 was a primary route west from Little Rock to the Fort Smith area. But today, AR 10 is relegated to a higher purpose, at least for riders - a pleasant run along the Ouachita foothills and through the Petit Jean River Valley.
