Approximately 139 miles

Prepare yourself to visit one of the best bakeries in the land, Amish Bakery, then cross over a bridge and head into Bennett Springs State Park, where you can go fishing for fresh trout. From Conway you will be riding on History. Old Route 66, America’s most famous highway, will take you through Marshfield and Northview, enroute back to Springfield.
