The 200 foot tall bluffs visible in the Devils Elbow area were once described as being one of the "seven scenic wonders of Missouri" in literature from the Missouri Planning Commission. Rittenhouse described one of Pulaski County's segments as "one of the most beautiful sections of the Ozarks" in his Guide Book To Highway 66.
Following the road in Pulaski County you will visit cities whose heyday was years ago, as well as cities just finding their roots.
Travel through the beautiful hamlet of Devils Elbow, which was bypassed in the 1940's when Highway 66 was realigned, and find out why lumberjacks cried in frustration at a large boulder lodged in the sharpest bend in the Big Piney River.
They reasoned the boulder could only have been put there by the devil.
While in the Devils Elbow /Grandview area make sure to drive across the 1942 Big Piney River Bridge (an excellent example of a concrete open spandrel arch bridge) and stop at the Scenic Overlook to view the picturesque 1941 United States Army Railroad bridge in the Ozark valley below.
The stretch of Route 66 that winds through Pulaski County is lush with brilliant scenery and breathtaking landscapes.
Rivers cut through limestone and dolomite rock leaving dramatic bluffs and fertile valleys.
The former Bell Hotel & Resort has been converted into a funeral home but is still easily recognizable from vintage postcards.
