Description

The trail begins at one lake (North Fork) and ends at another (Ouachita). It passes through the thick hardwoods and dark pines of the Ouachita National Forest, opening occasionally to spectacular bluffs above the river. This is rolling terrain – ranging between 1,000 and 1,600 feet in elevation – but it all adds up to serious mileage and elevation gain.

Flora & Fauna

During the warmer months, be aware of chiggers, ticks, and possibly snakes. Otherwise, enjoy the beautiful hardwood and pine forest views.
