Loves these "horse trail" roads....
Why destroy the natural landscape so humans can have a nice straight boring road

Twisty curved roads are a reason why I do like the Ozarks and Appalachians. I look at it like this: The more of them there are the more likely city people and outsiders will not want to frequent those places or move there. It keeps most outsiders away.

What roads are the best? I want to drive some next time I'm down there. Hwy 87 between Boonesboro and Glasgow is pretty good, I drive it frequently.

State 34 from US 67 to US 60 is about as twisty as it gets. We just got back from there and were impressed. We stayed at Sam Baker cabins and headed to West Plains from there.

The drive from Hollister to Jasper, AR is gorgeous and if you follow Hwy 7 out of town you go to the highest point in the Ozarks overlooking the Buffalo National River and AR "Grand Canyon." Cliff House, a great Restaurant, is on that drive. If you have the time, keep following Hwy 7 down off the peak and it takes you through a lovely valley on the way back toward Branson.

Cliff House! Dang it, I wish I knew that last week, I wanted to take the wife there but couldn't remember where it was or the name. I was there about 8 years ago with a bunch of Boy Scouts. Spectacular view and decent food. Maybe next time.

Yes I scare my Son driving the Hills and I admit if something happens it won't be good.

Was with a Guy on Gravel back roads. He was surprised they didn't pave them. One county by us tried Chip and Sealing all the Gravel Roads, ran out of money now would be better with Gravel.


Had a Sheriff Deputy hire me to drive him way back in the woods to serve papers. Told him going down the second hill I was taking it slow because I didn't have Brakes. He was really excited after that LOL. Made it ok and he paid me well.
