Highlight: North Fork Pinnacle - Lake Sylvia
Just a short 2-mile drive down North Fork Pinnacle - Lake Sylvia/FR152 off of Lake Winona Drive/FR132 resides beautiful Lake Sylvia. This serene little lake is tucked away in the Ouachita National Forest and covers 18 acres of national forest land as it rests peacefully amidst pine and oak covered mountains. Lake Sylvia is known amongst the locals not only for its swimming and fishing but for its camping, hiking and kayaking opportunities as well. The campgrounds offer all of the amenities and are an excellent option to set up a base camp for an adventure packed weekend. This is a great way to catch up on some family time, get in a bit of exercise, or get out and explore the abundance of forest roads in the area. For instance, continuing straight past Lake Sylvia 2.4 miles and turning left on FR805 is Brown Creek Cascade - Flatside Pinnacle or heading back to the trailhead will put you back on the Winona Auto Tour Scenic Drive. Regardless of your decision on which activities to partake in, you won't be disappointed.

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✌️
