Overview

The Ozarks are known for their beautiful forests, clear creeks, and rocky outcroppings. Nowlin Hollow is an excellent microcosm of the 1.2 million-acre Ozark National Forest wrapped up in a short journey. The road follows the river at the bottom of Nowlin Valley in the forest's heart. The multiple water crossings you will experience on Nowlin Hollow are memorable and picturesque. You will find each crossing more inspiring than the last as you take in this idyllic forest journey. Make sure you have a camera for this adventure as you slow down and take in the sights, sounds, and smells of this national treasure. Because this trail is not along the beaten path, travel with other off-roaders as you will not come across many other vehicles during this trail ride.
