This ride runs along the southern side of the Lake of the Ozarks and passes through Climax Springs. On the western end is the Harry S. Truman Reservoir and about 50 miles to the east is the Osage Beach area and the state parks at Ha Ha Tonka and Lake of the Ozarks.
Highway 7 is a two-lane that offers long sweepers and a few twisties. Pavement is good to great. For the most part the ride is scenic and inspiring, not overly technical.
