The Piedmont Wappapello Loop is located in Southeastern Missouri. Starting in Piedmont, this route jumps into the fun right from the start. Leaving Piedmont and heading West, the terrain is filled with rolling hills that provide the twists and turns (and fun!).
The route eventually turns South and the road opens up into wide open sweepers before turning back to the East. Here the route changes again to tighter twists and turns for a short run before turning South again and eventually entering the Mark Twain National Forest. Inside the forest, the curves get tighter and tighter until the route begins the trip back North.
Heading North, this route passes through Wappapello and then back into the Mark Twain National Forest. This part of the route is more heavily populated, but the road eventually turns to twisties as it enters the forest. The rolling hills and curves continue all the way to Greenville.
After Greenville, riders continue further North for a trip through Sam A Baker State Park before returning to the starting point in Piedmont.
