Arkansas Diamond Run-Historic Washington

This fun route through the Ouachita Mountains also offers a wild ride through history as it introduces you to some famous (and infamous) folks with Arkansas connections. These include mobsters such as Owen Madden, Al Capone, baseball stars like Babe Ruth, old-time radio and television celebs Lum and Abner, and James Black, maker of the original knife used by Alamo hero Jim Bowie. 

The best place to begin this winding ride through the Ouachitas and Timberlands is Hot Springs. The Spa City, as it’s called, is famous for its naturally thermal waters and a perfect stop for those enjoying motorcycle vacations. In 1886, Cap Anson brought his Chicago White Stockings (now Cubs) to Hot Springs for spring training. Dozens of baseball legends, including Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle and Jackie Robinson, followed.
