This 45-mile portion of Highway 309 was designated as an Arkansas Scenic Byway in 1994. This byway starts at highway 10 in Havana and proceeds north over Mount Magazine, the highest point in Arkansas at 2,753 feet. This mountain was named by French explorers who recognized a resemblance to magazines used by the French military to store ammunition.
North of Mount Magazine, Highway 309 descends into the rich farmland of the Arkansas River Valley where it ends at Highway 23 in Webb City.
