Trail Overview

This is a maintained forest road. There are some rocky eroded sections at the north end but it is passable with a 2WD vehicle with good clearance. Along the trail are stunning views of Forked Mountain. There are sections with good views of the mountains, which are picturesque in the fall when the leaves are changing. It connects Trail 86 with the Winona Scenic Drive. There are a few switchbacks but they are wide enough for two vehicles, like most of the trail. The Ouachita Trail crosses on the south end, and there is a small parking spot if you want to take a hike. The north end of the trail is a short drive from Hollis Country Store on Highway 7 if you are hungry or need to gas up.
