A quick word on weather as you plan motorcycle routes in Arkansas. The spring is a great time to visit as the rivers and waterfalls are at full peak, but expect regular rain in the mountain regions. In the summer, temperatures heat up to the hot and humid climate you'd expect in the south, so bring lightweight, breathable riding gear or four season gear. The summer months are perfect for camping, so make sure you pack your motorcycle camping gear when you go. In the fall, pleasant temps and autumn leaves make for an engaging setting. If you're wondering about winter rides, Northern Arkansas receives some snow and regular cold temperatures. Meanwhile, winter in the central and southern parts of the state are more mild. Four season rides are definitely possible in Arkansas, but make sure you have base layers for extra warmth and set up REVER weather alerts and radar before you head out.
