Overview

This shady route takes you into the shady recesses of the Ozark National Forest. After the first bend it will take you through the sun and several patches of wild black berries ( Warning: these encroach upon the trail times and will scratch your rig. See route description). If you catch them in season, they will be the sweetest black berries you've ever eaten, and at times can easily be picked from your rig just by rolling the window down (see warning above / route description). This lush portion of the forest, with it's sweet fruit and closeness to the Illinois Bayou, make it home to some of Arkansas' most known wild life. Animal sightings are common on this trail, including deer, hogs, and black bears, so have your cameras ready! (remember: these are wild animals, and you should never approach them. Follow tread lightly principles!) Finally, for the brave, you can take a quick hike down to the bayou if you split off at Waypoint 4.
