Arkansas’s Top 5 Rides

We realize the conventional wisdom is that the Pig Trail is the best ride in Arkansas and while we agree it is a terrific ride, we would just suggest heading a little further south to Mena and try out the Talimena Scenic Drive.  It’s often overlooked due to it’s location in the southern most area of the Ozarks but we feel it just edges out the Pig Trail for overall stunning vistas, road conditions and length of ride.

Area Attractions for the Ozarks Discover Missouri's Mills
Discover Missouri’s Old Mills
If you’re looking for an out of the ordinary ride, you might try the Missouri Mills Run.  The state of Missouri is home to many wonderfull mills from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and back then going to the mill was much like going to a county fair is today.  In pioneer Missouri, villages and towns were often built around a gristmill, where grains were ground into flour and meal, and a sawmill, where timber could be worked into useable lumber.  These water-driven mills were plentiful in Missouri, especially in the southern regions where spring-fed streams provided an almost inexhaustible supply of water power. Because of high demand, the mills often ran 24 hours (except on Sundays), operating on a first-come first-served basis, whether the farmer brought a wagon full of grain or one two-bushel sack. When a man arrived with raw grist, the miller marked his load by a stamp placed on his sacks or wagon, thus designating the man’s place in line. It was not uncommon for a man to wait several days for his grist to be processed. This time was spent fishing, trading or bartering for goods and livestock, discussing the news of the day, pitching horseshoes, playing sports and cards, and hashing over religious and political opinions.
