Arkansas Highway 23 – Pig Trail Scenic Byway – Ozark to Brashears

Drive America’s Highways for 24 miles north along the Pig Trail Scenic Byway – Arkansas Highway 23 – from Ozark to Brashears.

We start the video turning onto the Pig Trail about a block north of Interstate 40 in Ozark. Driving north we soon pass the intersection with AR-352 in White Oak as we start to leave the river valley region and enter the Ozark Plateau. As we climb out of the river valley, we enter the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest where the road becomes twisty and steep as we wind our way north towards the Mulberry River and Cass.

Watch:  Arkansas Highway 341: Push Mountain Road - Big Flat to Norfolk

At Cass, we pass a Job Corps complex before passing the intersection with AR-215 where we continue northbound towards Brashears. Passing through one of the most challenging parts of Arkansas Highway 23, we pass by Mulberry Mountain before taking a brief stop at the one scenic overlook on the route. Leaving the overlook, we wind our way up the rest of the mountain where the road straightens out as it makes its final approach into Brashears, where we end the video at the intersection with Arkansas Highway 16.

Watch:  Interstate 49 - Fort Smith to Barling - Arkansas

    if there is a motorcycle heaven, then this would be it. I rode this road a few times with my KTM Duke II. Good old times.

      If you like this one, try AR-21 and AR-9 north of Mtn View 🙂

      @Interstate 411 I am sure we rode those roads too. Can't recall the numbering, but we did 250-300 Miles a day. It was about 17 years ago, and I live 7 time zones from there. I can assure you, there are no better roads for motorcycles. Well there might be one, I think it is in NC, but can't recall the name of it.
