Highlight: 93054N
This technical trail in the Ozark National Forest is an excellent way to save time by cutting from Adams Mountain Road to North Fork Road, in order to continue exploring other areas of the forest. Be warned though... You WILL NEED a spotter to deal with the washouts. If you like a challenge and prefer to avoid the mundane gravel connector roads, 93054N is the trail for you. This short trail is a great way to dodge those mundane gravel roads, do a little technical driving, and get in some good experience and practice with a spotter. It's not the most hardest trail, which makes it PERFECT for beginner off-roaders with a good spotter, or medium experienced off-roaders with a beginner spotter wanting to get some practice. Don't let the short length of this fool you; this trail offers plenty of excitement with a challenging hill climb/descent, washouts in the middle of the trail, and an exciting stair step rock climb on the west end.
