This looks like alot of fun. I would like to go in a few  weeks. Anybody interested when I have a better idea of when I'd like to go? Preferably someone who has done it in the past.

There are two trailheads - One at the beginning and one at the end. I will be doing a trip in the summer sometime. Not sure on length... It gets pretty warm, maybe a day or two. You guys are welcome to come on that!

I did about 60 miles of it yesterday and was surprised at the amount of trash at camps along the bayou , I about filled up a trash bag and hauled a big plastic pallet out.. it amazes me how people can trash such wonderful country... water levels were lower than expected.. that afternoon  I ran up on a group from the Christian crawlers on Lindsey mtr.  way who were camped on the north fork, great bunch of guys...

Yeah... Thats one of the many reasons I have issues with releasing the Ozark Overland Trail. Some of the roads in the route haven't been traveled since the last time I was through there - and the remoteness of it is awesome. Lots of SXS/ATV damage to some of the trails, some river bottoms that started out as a nice technical drive have turned into a swamp land of social trails and garbage...

Something I noticed while I was in the La Sal Mountains with Brushogger was the lack of trash. It was astounding - we were both amazed and disappointed that Arkansas can't look like it.

That's part of my group... www.christiancrawlers4x4.org

They were on their spring ride.  I was supposed to join them, but it didn't quite work out this time around.
