Other Names

Ouachita National Forest, Oklahoma Ranger District, Ouachita Mountains, Indian Nation Trail, Lenox Ridge, Talimena State Park, CNT, INT, Stair Mountain, Billy Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

This 45-mile long linear trail consists of hard packed dirt with a few sections that are rocky, rugged and sometimes steep with several creek crossings. The trail is open to dirt bikes, ATVs and UTVs, and is marked with orange and blue blazes. The trail is also close to the Boardstand Millitary Trail, which offers 23 miles of pure single track.

Direct trail access plus camping can be found at Tailmena State Park. The park features ten RV sites, each with a paved parking pad, electric and water hookups and seven tent sites, plus a parking area for small trailers. Amenities include restrooms, showers and a small gift shop. Reservations are required to camp at this state park which can be made online.

Billy Creek Campground is another option but offers a more secluded environment. This campground borders a small stream and offers 12 sites, each with a picnic table, BBQ grill and lantern pole. There is also a vault toilet and potable water pump.

Visitors should note that Billy Creek Campground is smaller and geared for tent campers. Those with large trailers or RVs should consider parking at Tailmena State Park.
