The Cape Girardeau Loop is located in Southern Missouri 30 miles West of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  While there are not a lot of points of interest on this loop, the riding is spectacular.  Starting in Marble Hill, this ride starts North and jumps into the twisties almost immediately.  After turning West, the route hugs the hilltops and enters the Mark Twain National Forest.  Inside the National Forest, the fun continues as the curves line up back to back for miles on end.


After exiting the National Forest and passing through Annapolis, the path continues to the Southwest and the curvy roads continue.  The wonderful curves follow the hilltops all the way to Ellington where the path turns to the South and East.


The path back East is just as amazing as the way West.  There are similar tight twisties on the ridgetops and wider sweepers in the valleys, especially where this route follows Highway 34 for a short distance.  With another pass through the Mark Twain National Forest, this route is a gem from start to finish!
