Two sections of highway, totaling 60.6 miles, through the Ouachita Mountains and the Boston Mountains in the Ozark Highlands. The Arkansas Highway 7 Scenic Byway is actually two separate sections of the same north-south highway. The section through the Ouachita National Forest is 24.3 miles long, and the section in the Ozark National Forest totals 36.3 miles. The byway segments are separated by about 40 miles of the populated Arkansas River Valley. The winding two-lane highway is paved and has turnouts for scenic and recreational access. Special attractions: Brilliant autumn foliage, spring wildflowers, Ozark Highlands and Ouachita national recreation trails, Rotary Ann Overlook. 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.

I a motorcyclist and have ridden Hwy 7 twice now. The road north of Hot Springs all the way to Harrison is just about as good as it gets! Greatroad surfaces, outstanding collection of tight turns, big sweeepers and wonderful peaks and vallyes! I highly recommend this ride for any one serious about riding the best roads in America. Arkansas Hwy 7 has to rank in the Top 10!
