Part 3: Roach to Greenview
- Distance: 24 miles / 38.6 km
- Ride Time: 1-2 hours
- Approximate Fuel Costs: $1.82
- State: Missouri
This is part 3: After you end D Rd at 54, turn west (L) on 54 to J and turn North (R). You will see a sign for Roach at Hwy AA, but do not go there as it dead ends in the lake. Pass AA to J. J Road is twisty turny, up and down but for faster speeds. At least one bridge with 1 lane and one bridge with metal grating (look down and see the Little Niangua River). Some hills, very scenic. Drive twice. Scrape pegs first time, enjoy scenery second time. Scenery is actually better after the leaves come down, but is absolutely beautiful in the fall change. Turn east (R) on 7, back to Greenview which is where 7 dead ends into Hwy 5. On the SW corner is a smoke free restaurant 'Tupelo Honey'.

After you get to Greenview, turn south (R) to return to Camdenton. Hwy 7 has the most curves from J Rd to Hwy 5. Going west on Hwy 7 from J Rd is curvy and up and down, but unless you are headed north and west it is a long way to get back to the lake. Also there is a motorcycle shop called "My Place" on Hwy 7 just west of J Rd. But the man that works there is very vulgar and insulting toward women. My wife and I no longer go there because of his foul, profane mouth and obvious dislike for women bikers.
