Any north AR / south MO must-sees?

I may find my way up in the Bull Shoals / Eureka Springs / southern MO area this wknd for some leaf peeping. I know there are no bad roads between them, but is there one or more that just really stand out? That I shouldn't miss?


I can read a map but thought I'd pick some personal-experience brains too

Check out the peel ferry, heading that way this afternoon (from MO side)

Don't miss 123 south of Mt Judea and push mountain

Where is @KCMOSteve he showed me a really, really tighter corner road East of Dog Patch one year. I'm looking now and don't see it but I swear it was. Hwy 130-131, or something. I'll find out. Really anything around Fort Lenardwood and south is great.

123, aka the AR Dragon, IS outstanding! Awesome piece of road that one, thanks. I've hit it several times ... and will prob do it again just because of the fun factor.

The MO peel ferry suggestion is intriguing. That's kind of what I'm looking for ... something different

I do like those 3 digit roads though

There's also the Pig Trail, assuming you haven't been on that one yet.

If you did the AR-123 trail North to South, then you could make your way over to Clarksville, catch I40 to Ozark and then ride the Pig Trail, AR-23 North to St. Paul.

Here's a link: Arkansas Pig Trail - Arkansas 23 in Arkansas | Arkansas Motorcycle Roads and Rides | MotorcycleRoads.com

Here's another site that shows different POIs in the area, and it looks to be interactive and maybe editable. at this page, click the "view map" just to the right of the text:
https://maps.roadtrippers.com/trips/14617028


There's also some "castles" in the area. Here's one up in the Eureka Springs area. It shows like a venue for rent, but it also has a restaurant and lodge:

Supposedly, Ben Franklin said beer is proof God wants us to be happy. So, does my love of beer mean I'm closer to Him?
