We start the drive from Benton to Hot Springs merging onto U.S. Highway 70 from Interstate 30 southwest of Benton, Arkansas. After a quick fuel stop, we resume our ride down US-70, passing the intersection with Arkansas Highway 88 before reaching a signaled intersection with AR-128 a few miles later.
Continuing on highway 70, we turn southwest for about 8 miles. As we approach Hot Springs, we turn west once again towards the interchange with U.S. Highway 70b, where we end the video turning onto the US-70 ramp.
This video is dedicated to the memory of Cindy Adams. Friend and fellow rider.
Note: This video updates our previous video of the same route. The original video was taken before the highway was widened. Which version of the highway do you like better? The narrow or the wide? Let us know in the comments.
