Soak up the rugged mountain landscape of southeastern Oklahoma on this winding drive through Ouachita National Forest to the Oklahoma-Arkansas border. If the panoramic vistas on SR1 have you wanting a closer look, explore hiking trails and picnic spots just off the route.
The western edge of Talimena State Park is the starting point for this journey through Winding Stair Mountain National Recreation Area. Breathtaking panoramic vistas reward road trippers; numerous turnouts along SR1 make it easy to appreciate the scenery. Plan your trip for late October or early November to see the mountain faces blush ruby, melon and gold.
