The rugged and forested Boston Mountains region of the Arkansas Ozark Mountains provides the setting for the Pig Trail, which often runs through a tunnel of foliage during springsummer and fall. Spring wildflowers and brilliant autumn foliage make the scenic route especially popular during those seasons of the year – whether you ride or drive. The route crosses the Mulberry River and the 165-mile Ozark Highlands Trail.

Route: 19 miles

Take Arkansas State Highway 23 from the south boundary of the Ozark National Forest near Interstate 40 (35.544884, -93.859461) through Franklin County to its intersection with Ark. 16 at Brashears in Madison County (35.812193, -93.794855).
