Last Known StatusOpen

This part of the Ouachita National Forest features about 22 miles of rugged ATV trails that form a long loop. The trail has a good variety of light to moderate hill climbs, seasonal water crossings and is surrounded by a mixed hardwood forest.

There are two designated staging areas that offer plenty of room for parking but there are no camping facilities. Call before you haul for current conditions.
