Mark Twain National Forest
Although most roads through the Mark Twain National Forest are scenic, a few are outstandingly so. The scenery is especially attractive in mid-April to early May, when redbud and dogwood bloom, and in mid-October to early November, when leaves change color.
The Glade Top Trail (Forest Road 147) is a National Scenic Byway. This 17-mile winding gravel road will take you through cedar-dotted knobs in the Ava-Cassville Ranger District. The Caney Picnic Area and other stops offer vistas of surrounding glades and northern Arkansas mountains.
Skyline Drive in the Eleven Point Ranger District is a four-mile paved loop along a ridgetop off Highway 103, south of Van Buren, Missouri. This drive offers scenic vistas of surrounding hills and river valleys.
Sugar Camp Road also offers ridge-top views of Ozark scenery. Located on the Ava-Cassville Ranger District, the 10-mile forest drive runs between Highway 112 near Roaring River State Park and Highway 86 near Eagle Rock.
