Motorcycle touring through Southwestern Arkansas
Texarkana north to Queen Wilhelmina Park, near Mena - 110 miles.
Become an outdoorsman in western Arkansas. Start your Arkansas motorcycle tour along the western edge of the Natural State in Texarkana. Tucked away in the southwest corner of Arkansas, Texarkana offers its visitors exciting stops like the Texarkana Auto Museum, and plenty of historic homesteads. You can ride through town for a look at these architectural admirations, or rest up at the rider-friendly Best Western hotel in Texarkana.
About 30 miles north of Texarkana near the city of Ashdown, the Millwood State Park is known for great fishing and spectacular wildlife viewing. Cast out for largemouth or black bass – plus crappie, catfish and bream – or savor an afternoon of great bird watching. Hike along the Waterfowl Way Trail, and the Wildlife Lane Nature Trail, or saddle back up for the 100-mile ride through Arkansas’ wilderness to the Queen Wilhelmina State Park.
Skirting the western edge of Arkansas, the Talimena National Scenic Byway is a lush stretch of road taking you from the city of Mena and the Queen Wilhelmina State Park. Introduce yourself to the Ouachita Mountains with a trip to Lover’s Leap – an unforgettable overlook of the Ouachita National Forest. Keep an eye out for wildlife, and sit down for dinner at Queen's Restaurant. Take a stroll down the Spring Trail, or see how much of 225-mile Ouachita Trail you can get under your belt.
Between the fishing at Millwood Lake to the spectacular views of Queen Wilhelmina State Park, you can see for yourself how western Arkansas earns the "natural" in Natural State.
