Re: Talimena ride next month.

There are several Forrest service roads that will connect to trail also that were ride-able by Guzzi a few years ago. After all the rain, they may be very fun.

Re: Talimena ride next month.

We rode the Talimena Parkway back in April. Well worth the ride, beautiful scenery and very little traffic. Mena is an interesting little town to visit as well. The Skyline Cafe in Mena is a great place for breakfast or lunch.

Re: Talimena ride next month.

We're camping @ Mt Nebo SP then riding a loop north on Friday. Saturday either ride a different route north, or find a loop south.

Re: Talimena ride next month.

Cool...if we time it right we might get a good group going and grab some lunch during the ride. I'll be picking routes based on Butler so it should be good.

Re: Talimena ride next month.

Sorry I missed this with yall, and I just got back from a solo trip.

Stayed in Mena, and did the Scenic Drive about 5 times. Went west to 144 called "the Indian Trail", and did a trip to Hot Springs also.

Is the CMA a place to stay at as well?

Re: Talimena ride next month.

Yep, I am a CMA member, but I don't really know why you couldn't camp there.

cmausa.org is the main web site. Click on the green iron mountain logo button thing on the left side of the screen.

Wish I woulda known that. I'm a CM, but not a member of CMA.
