  • Fayetteville Ar. to Eurkea Spgs. - Route Q

    I'd appreciate any suggestions traveling with a 5er from Fayetteville Ar. to a CG just below Beaver Dam, outside Eureka Springs. Should I continue north on Hwy 71 to Rogers and head east on Hwy 62? The alternative appears to be taking Hwy 412 at Springdale to Huntsville then north on Hwy 23 to Eureka Springs.

    Jay,

    I have used both roads to Eureka Springs. Hwy 23 north is much less dramatic. Hwy 62 west of Eureka Spring has many sharp turns in the hills, some so tight I thought I could see the tail lights of my own MS 2750, but may be a colorful fall drive this time of the year.

      Take the Hwy 62 route. You real don't want to tow anything through Eureka Springs. I live an half hour away and travel there for dinner about every other week. There is a steak house called Gaskins Cabin, you will be about 11 miles from it. Definitely worth the trip, you will not be disappointed. We make the trip from Shell Knob Mo. at least once a month

        Have you pulled a trailer on route 62 or just driven a car?

            Sorry that I can't actually help you on this, but several years ago I was traveling up in that area and took what looked like a main road in the Rand-McNally Atlas--no way would I tow on that road, some of the rock overhangs would force a trailer out into the opposite lane on a blind corner.
            So, hope you get some good advice for towing.

              No Drama

              Mee's reference to a, 'less dramatic' route hit home. There's a crazy area on Texas Hwy 16, between Kerrville and Medina, that should be avoided if pulling anything but the smallest pop up trailer.

              I do plan to dine at Gaskin Cabins Steak House.

                  Actually, yes. 40' fifth wheel and a 16' enclosed, both with a crew cab dually. I much rather deal with the 62 than the traffic and narrow, winding streets of Eureka Springs.
