Wonderful trails that lead you into the peaceful and lovely forest. The smell of the beautiful pines and other evergreen trees gives us a sense of well-being and peace.
We loved this drive. Having driven for many many days through flat flat scenery we were delighted to be able to do this route on our way from Poteau to Little Rock.
