If we're starting after noon, I am curious how long (miles) you think the drive will be?

Youngturk, The three mountains are fairly close together and are strung along the south rim of the Arkansas River Valley. Mount Nebo is the middle mountain. From Mount Nebo: Mount Petit Jean is 45 miles away in a southeast direction, and Mount Magazine is 36 miles away (from Nebo) in a westerly direction. Roadway mileage will be more than the straight line distances given above. We have not yet selected the exact tour routing. Tour routing will be determined by our 7th of September pre-drive.
This should be a very scenic tour with lots of twisting roads and great photo ops at overlooks from mountain tops. On clear days one can view Mounts Petit Jean and Magazine from Mount Nebo. From all three mountains, one can view the Arkansas River and one or another of its lakes.
This is one Honda S2000 and Acura NXS tour you won't want to miss!

I can't speak for the other mountains yet, but I vacationed in Petit Jean last year and it was amazing! Tons of places to take photos! I can't wait to go up there in the S instead of the Civic!

This tour will start at Mather Lodge Restaurant. Registration will open at 10:30 AM and end at 10:55 AM. We'll have lunch at the restaurant from 11AM to 11:45AM and begin the tour shortly thereafter.

Please arrive with a full tank and have your two-way radios preset to channel 4, sideband 0.

Hello All, On our 14 Sept Three Mountain Tour, we will have lunch at the Mather Lodge Restaurant atop Mt. Petit Jean (good food!), and supper at the Wiederkehr Village Restaurant (great food!) atop Mt. St. Mary (near Altus, AR). I sure hope you all can make this (slower than BMT) scenic tour. The tour is about 125 mile long. Registration starts at 10:30 am at the Mather Lodge and supper should end between 6:00 to 6:30 PM. We have planned four en route photo op stops at scenic mountain overlooks and two other en route stops for restroom breaks. I am recommending that tour participants arrive atop Mt. Petit Jean about 45 minutes before the 10:30 am Tour Registration period so as to have time to visit Petit Jean's (grave) Overlook and the Cedar Falls Overlook (requires 10-min easy walk down to overlook of the waterfall from parking lot.). Both of those scenic overlooks are worth seeing, but are not included in our tour.

Jerome where are you meeting at in AR for this trip? I'm hoping to join in since I won't be able to make the Fall BMT

Whitenoise, The meet place is the start place atop of Mt. Petit Jean (sw of Morrilton, AR). I will be passing through the intersection of I-40 & Hwy 7 to get there. If anyone wants to meet me at the Exxon Station (southeast quadrant) of that intersection, we can setup a meet time.
