Ouachita Trail
Talimena State Park Trails

Talimena State Park serves as the starting (or ending) point for the 223 mile Ouachita National Recreation Trail, which travels east to Pinnacle Mountain State Park, just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas. The entire trail is open to hiking and backpacking, and some sections are also open to mountain biking as well.

Also nearby, the Boardstand Road and Old Military Road trails offer hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, equestrian riding, and ATV riding through the Ouachita National Forest. Hikers, backpackers and mountain bikers can combine the Boardstand Road and Old Military Road trails with a portion of the Ouachita Trail to form a looped hike of about 23 miles. This loop can be started and finished at Talimena State Park. Motorized vehicles and horses are not allowed anywhere on the Ouachita Trail.

Another trail located nearby is the Choctaw Nation Trail, formerly known as the Indian Nations Trail. This trail is open to hikers, backpackers, mountain bikers and ATV riders. Riders can access the trail from the park, as it winds through the surrounding Ouachita National Forest.

Numerous other old logging roads and other ATV trails can be found in the surrounding forest, and can easily be accessed from the park or nearby trails.
