Talimena Treasures - The Ouachita Trail Traditional Geocache
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
This hide is part of the Talimena Treasures cache series, which now includes 18 caches. You can plan a day of driving this wonderful scenic byway and pick up a lot of smilies, some history, and breathtaking views.
Few people set foot on the Ouachita Trail, even though it is known for being one of the most scenic trails in America. It crossed the Talimena Drive several times, so I decided to place a cache where you can easy walk a little ways on the trail.
You'll need to pull off the scenic drive onto a nice gravel road (forest road 6010) and park. From there, walk down the trail and enjoy the flora and fauna.
My goal is to someday hike the trail from at least Talimena State Park to Queen Wilhelmina State Park. After doing this cache, you'll be able to say you've hike at least a portion of the trail (a few feet of it, anyway).
