Yo, Arky, I've had a chance to visit the WW corner of Ar. Wonderful Area. Been to Devils Den even.
Enjoy the Vee, Great area to ride.

No, Push Mountain Rd is Hwy 341. 14 is great though, as are at least 50 other roads in that region.

I'd argue that NW Arkansas is the best riding area in the country.

If you want to see your tires ball up and feather a bit from accelerating out of curves, there is no better road than Push Mountain! No traffic and some nice sweepers as well as tighter stuff.

Everyone talks about the NW part of Arkansas, but I prefer that area below and East of Mountain Home to NW area.
