Highlights

Highlight: The Connector Trail
This trail, located in Windrock Park near Oliver Springs, Tennessee, is a great way to get from the campgrounds to the general store. Whether you need to get an emergency supply of TP or want to access other trails on that side of the park, this trail is a great warm-up trail to get the day started. The large hill climb/descent at the north end may seem daunting, but its a great first impression of what Windrock Park has to offer.

Brandon McCullough

Mapping Crew - Arkansas

Brandon is an avid camper, and thorough follower of the motto "pack light; freeze at night". Spending 6 years in the Marine Corps Infantry, he learned to sleep on the ground under the stars. No tent required. After purchasing his Nissan Xterra and joining the off road community, he has learned to get a little more comfortable since his rig is carrying the gear now; instead of himself. Brandon spends most of his time with his dog Yams, or doing one of the following: working in the garage on his Nissan Xterra, Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, Volkswagen TDI Golf, spending time at the rifle range, out on the water kayaking and Trout fishing, at a NASCAR race, or on the trails in his Xterra.
