Trail Overview

This track starts on the west side of the Ouachita National Forest off Highway 71. It will take you east into the forest and to a pond and dispersed campsite. This section of forest is not traveled as much as some of the more popular sections. Undergrowth is heavy in places and vehicle scratches are possible. The first part of this gravel road is two vehicle widths wide and smooth. When it turns right it will narrow and present more under growth and difficulty. There are a couple of dispersed campsites on this narrow section that takes you by a pond and to a dead end. The dispersed campsites have growth in them. You can encounter mud, loose gravel, and washouts along the trail.
