Trail Overview

Starting the trail to the east, it's an easy gravel road for the first 5 miles or so. Then it turns into a muddy mess with high ruts in the middle which make it hard for a low clearance vehicle to make it through certain sections. You can see this in the photo at mile 5.9. There are some really great campsites along this route, some with views for miles. We ended up camping at one of them which was a nice end to a long day of off-roading. Do be careful as I saw several deer which crossed the road in front of us in several spots on this route, so I have marked these areas on the trail as well. At about mile marker 12, the road deteriorates into a washed-out road which is very technical but fun to navigate. I have a three-inch lift on thirty-three's and I was able to navigate it without any issues in four low. At the very end of the trail are the South Fourche LaFave River and a campsite with a fire ring. Due to the high river, we decided to not risk camping there due to the potential of rising water. Arkansas is known for flash flooding so do be careful that you don't camp too close to rivers and streams. The campsite at the end would be best during the spring and early summer this would be a great camping location. All in all, it was a very fun road to explore and navigate, and would be great with a group of friends. Lots of area at the end to turn around to head back. I would keep it small in group size no more than 6 rigs at the bottom.
