Each year, we visit Arkansas in October to ride the scenic byways, and each year, we find another great place to ride. This is one of them, especially if you combine it with visits to other area state parks like Mt. Magazine and Petit Jean State Parks.
The road to the top of Mt. Nebo is short (under 2 miles) but incredibly twisty - lot of turns, many of them hairpin turns, and steep (18% grade.) Have a few miles under your belt, and a pretty good familiarity of the capabilities of your bike AND its handler before trying this one, as there's nowhere to turn around until you're quite close to the top.
Once we got to the top, there were plenty of deer right next to the roadway, who didn't spook as the bikes went by. The park contains a git shop and has cabins available for rent. We didn't plan far enough ahead to stay in one of the cabins, but will next time. Other riders we met who had just left Mt. Nebo suggested packing in everything you'll need, since supplies are limited at the top. (There are stores in Dardanelle that sell the stuff you'll need.)
