From Fayetteville, take Arkansas 16 east to Combs, turn south on Forest Service Road (FS Road) 1007 for 4 miles, turn left on FS Road 1509 1/2 mile to the trailhead. From Ozark, take Arkansas 23 north to Cass, turn left (west) on FS Road 1520 for 8 miles to FS Road 1509, then north 4 miles to trailhead.
The trail has many terrain options from creeks to up hill tire spinning climbs to sharp turns. The many spots to pull over and take it all in is just awesome. You will see wildlife of all sorts. I even seen a nice big diamond back rattlesnake on the last trip. Take a lunch
