Road Rube Rides
Garfield to Eureka Springs
Distance: 21 miles
Time: 35 minutes
Garfield to Eureka Springs on 62 is a crooked and steep twist-fest
Some roads epitomize mountain motorcycle riding. Highway 62 between Garfield and Eureka Springs is a mountain road that is challenging and mountain motorcycling fun.
Start in Garfield and head east on 62 and stay on it all the way to Eureka Springs.
Shortly outside of Garfield, signs tell drivers that crooked and steep roads are coming in the next 6 and a half miles. That’s enough of a selling point for me. The road descends and rises, twisting through the woods. It’s a workout to keep the bike in the right gear as the hills and curves change with such frequency. Switchbacks and speed changes make it a great mountain run.
The Bottom Line
Another awesome ride in the Ozarks. Totally worth it.
