Great vids man. That looks like a great road. Lots of twisties and very few side roads/ driveways...perfect!

best road in Arkansas, runs parallel to and crosses Hwy 7 north of Russellville; the lower section is best run going north of Clarksville, loads of sweepers, scenery, waterfalls, one lane bridges... the upper section is best run south of Mt Judea, which is SE of Harrison; climbs straight up, lots of 10-15 MPH turns(according to the signs), this is the section in the video. I live just south of Little Rock, Malevern is approx 40 minutes down I-30, so you would be approx 1.5-2.0 hours from where it starts getting interesting. You could jump over to Hot Springs and run 7 all the way up; Road and Track Magazine once voted 7 in the top 5 driving roads in the US...

23 is the Pig Trail, runs north out of Ozark, used to be used as another route to Fayetteville for Razorback games; a great road, but occupied by a lot of rolling chrome. 123 runs north of Clarksville, a lot less travelled but better twisties, but you have to be going there to get there. Another fantastic road is 103 north of Clarksville, killer switchbacks, dead ends into 215 which runs into 23... check it out on Google; the Ozarks are home to some of the best two lane in the US. What days are you going to be in the state?
