Trail Overview

This road leaves Hickory Nut Road at the west end and the east end stops at Crystal Springs Resort entrance. Across the main road is a public boat ramp with restrooms and great views of Lake Ouachita. There are nice dispersed campsites along this road. Awesome creek-side camping and group-sized dispersed campsites make this a must-see area. About the midways of this road is a pipe spring. You can not miss this roadside attraction as you travel this road. The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail is along this section of the road.
