The route begins at Highway 23 north of Eureka Springs and runs northwest over the Beaver Bridge to enter Beaver. The bridge is restricted to one–lane traffic with a 20,000 pounds (9,100 kg) weight limit and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After Beaver, Highway 187 curves east to meet US 62. The routes form a 0.9 miles (1.4 km) concurrency through Busch, after which Highway 187 turns south. Highway 187 enters Beaver Dam Park and rides atop Beaver Dam for 0.25 miles (0.40 km).
