A 59-mile drive starting at Mountain Home, traveling south to the scenic river hills of the White River, and ending at Mountain View. This area of the eastern Arkansas Ozarks has a lower elevation than its western counterpart. The White River and its tributaries have been carving into this region of the Ozark uplift for more than 100 million years, exposing prominent dolomite cliffs, sandstone outcrops, rugged wooded hills, and canyon-like valleys.
Special attractions: Blanchard Springs Caverns, Ozark Folk Center State Park, Norfork National Fish Hatchery, Norfork Lake, North Fork and White rivers, and Ozark National Forest; scenic views, hiking, canoeing, swimming, fishing (including trout), hunting, cave tour, camping, and horseback riding. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
