“The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail is a singletrack hiking and IMBA Epic mountain biking trail along Arkansas' Lake Ouachita.”— Dan Watson
Family Friendly Parts of this trail are in areas that are both beautiful and accessible to children.
The trail rises 900 feet from the Denby trailhead to the top of Hickory Nut Mountain and then on to Little Bear Creek at the foot of Bear Mountain, where one enjoys another 1200 foot climb across Bear Mountain to Brady Mountain Resort, followed by a final 1000 foot climb across Brady Mountain. Hikers travel up, down, and along mountain slopes through mixed hardwood and pine forests opening up at several places to breathtaking views of Lake Ouachita. Beautiful displays of wildflowers and tumbling waterfalls await during spring and summer months.
