Description

Rather than running east to west along creek beds like other trails on the Caddo Ranger District, this trail runs north to south across the mountains. Trail features include spectacular views of the Ouachita Mountains from such high points as Eagle Rock Vista, Brushheap Mountain and Hurricane Knob.

A mystical cave, located 35 feet below the trail on the south side of Brushy Mountain and a geological outcropping, located 150 feet south of the highest point on Brushy Mountain, add to the bikers experience. Part of this trail makes up the west leg of the Brush Heap Loop. This trail is best avoided during the summer months.
