Comment: From beginning to end, you won't be disappointed. Although I never got bored, some of it is less boring than other parts if you know what I mean. The elk were there even at 11:00am on the day we rode through Boxley valley. Very enjoyable run.

Comment: Great ride. My wife and I spent a week in Arkansas at the cliff house inn just south of Jasper and this was one of my favorite roads. It was hard to decide because they are all great.

Comment: Highway 21/74 is great road to ride through the Boxley valley area. I particular like the area where highway 21 north drops down into Boxley Valley, great scenery all along the way. Don't forget to take highway 74 east from Ponca to Jasper, very good road and great scenery. Be careful the first couple of miles out of Ponca, very technical with lots of tight curves, watch the oncoming traffic.
