Arkansas Bayou Bartholomew

At 359 miles long, Bayou Bartholomew, which begins in Pine Bluff, is the longest bayou in the United States. 
Bayou Bartholomew was once a wide, pristine waterway with barges, and even steamboats, plying its waters. Today it offers wonderful fishing. It serves as the dividing line between the Delta and the Timberlands and is the second most ecologically diverse waterway in the nation. 

This short loop starts at Star City. The ride down US 425 to AR 54 is a patchwork of timber and cleared pastures for cattle farming. Crossing Bayou Bartholomew at Winchester is like crossing from night into day. The bayou separates the Timberlands to the west and the Delta to the east like a squiggly line on paper. 

To experience two of the major geographical divisions of Arkansas in one short ride, while experiencing the meandering Bayou Bartholomew, is something you don’t find on many other motorcycling routes. 

Take AR 138 across US 65 then go 16 miles east to Rohwer. Here you’ll find the Rohwer Relocation Center National Historic Landmark where Japanese-Americans were interned during WW II. Continue to McGehee to see the World War II Japanese American Internment Museum in the restored 1910 Missouri-Pacific Railroad Depot.
