Highlight: Winona Auto Tour Scenic Drive
There are multiple reasons folks travel from all over the state to enjoy the Winona Auto Tour Scenic Drive! Throughout its 26 miles of gorgeous Arkansas scenery, the Winona Auto Tour offers numerous places to set up camp and unwind. The marvelous views from the overlooks and vistas are abundant and make for a truly relaxing drive through the mountains of the Ouachita National Forest. On this trek, you will venture across several of the mountain ridges in the Winona area: Oak, Wildcat, and Crystal Mountains just to name a few and there are several others with astounding landscape and beautiful forest canopy. There are plenty of neighboring roads and trails that branch off into other parts of the forest and it's not uncommon for people to spend an entire weekend exploring and enjoying nature around the Winona and Flat Side Wilderness areas. If you are looking to get your tires off the pavement and onto a scenic gravel road you won't want to miss out on the Winona Auto Tour Trail!

I am an Arkansas native that has a passion for exploring the roads less traveled, turning wrenches, getting dirty and having fun. I drive a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and enjoy finding and sharing with others what is in their own back yard. For some reason, most people think they have to plan some extravagant trip for it to be an adventure. While I don't want to take anything away from an extravagant trip out of state, an epic offroad adventure could be right down the road if you know where to look. I try to find these places and share them with others. It isn't always necessary to travel out of state in order to have a good time. In my opinion the great state of Arkansas offers everything a person could want if you know where to find it. I have an off-road Facebook page I call Offroad Testament, I'm also on Instagram and YouTube as Offroad Testament. Please take a moment to look them up and see what I'm about. Be safe, have fun and Happy Trailing✌️
