Fall in Arkansas is in full swing, and there’s no better time to enjoy the foliage with a scenic drive. You can take an afternoon or make a whole weekend out of it. If you’ve got a car, snacks and a great playlist, you’re all set for an easy, relaxing drive filled with gorgeous scenery.
Our team at Discount Auto Glass came up with our four of favorite drives you should take this fall.
Arkansas Highway 7 Scenic Byway
One of the most scenic byways in the country, the Highway 7 Scenic Byway begins near Arkadelphia and makes its way all the way up to north Arkansas in Harrison. This 290-mile route passes through both the Ouachitas and Ozarks, lakes, small, quaint towns and is full of beautiful scenic overlooks.
The Pig Trail
The Pig Trail packs a seemingly endless amount of gorgeous fall foliage in a mere 19 miles on Arkansas Highway 23. It’s an impressive feat, even for Northwest Arkansas. Once used as a shortcut for sports fans making their way to Fayetteville, (hence the name, “The Pig Trail”), this route is set in the Boston Mountains portion of the Ozarks. It begins in the south region of the Ozark National Forest and winds up to where Highway 23 meets Highway 16 in Brashears, Arkansas.
Talimena Scenic Drive
Boasting gorgeous vistas, a range of fall colors along the Talimena Scenic Drive follows Arkansas Highway 88 from Mena into the Oklahoma Mountains. The route is placed along mountain ridges within the Ouachita National Forest and includes 22 scenic views. There are plenty of wonderful opportunities to stop and take pictures,, including Queen Wilhelmina State Park.
Surrounded by the Arkansas Delta, Crowley’s Ridge is hard to miss, rising as much as 200 feet up from the rest of the otherwise flat region. This 198-mile route includes forests, views of the expansive delta, Civil War battlefields, country stores and antique shops.
