The Springfield MO Loop starts near the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds in Springfield and heads South for a short distance before turning onto historic Route 66.  Following Route 66, this loop weaves Northeast and follows the Interstate to Marshfield.  In Marshfield, Route 66 moves away from the Interstate and the scenery becomes more rural.


Eventually this route leaves Route 66 and turns to a gentle, curving ride for several miles.  The scenery alternates between farm fields and wooded areas.  As the ride progresses East, the hills start to get taller and the valleys deeper, so the curves start to get a bit tighter.  Eventually, the Springfield MO Loop enters a corner of the Mark Twain National Forest and the road is lined with thick trees on both sides.


After crossing Highway 95, riders will wind South before eventually turning onto Highway 38 to start the trip back West.  Even though Highway 38 is a main thoroughfare, it is just as twisty and curvy as the previous county roads.  Upon returning to Marshfield, the Springfield MO route leaves Highway 38 and jumps onto county roads again for more fun before eventually returning to Springfield and the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds.  Motorcycle Rides, Missouri, Strafford, Marshfield, Niangua Grovespring, Graff, Hartville, Mansfield, Ozarks
