Back on the Ouachita Trail!! Starting where we left off at Deadman's Gap and hiking to Horsethief Springs. This was an amazing section of trail, lots of water, boulder fields, shelters and many beautiful vistas.
So far, this has been one of my favorite parts of the trail due to the ruggedness and the climbing. Thanks for watching!!!
This is the first in a series of videos featuring the Ouachita Trail. Starting at the Talimena state park and hiking to Deadman's Gap at mile 8. We then jump off the Ouachita Trail and loop back to Talimena State park on a series of other trails. This hike took place in March of 2016 and I have section hiked the trail most of the year. Please stay tuned as more videos' will follow!!
Technically this is not the Ouachita Trail but the continuation of the Boardstand/Old Military Road Loop. We hiked to the 8-mile mark at Deadman's Gap and then took the Boardstand Trail and set up camp for the night. In the morning we continued down the Boardstand Trail and then took the Old Military Road Trail back to Ouachita Trail and finally back to Talimena State Park. This a 22-mile loop and is a great way to kick off your adventure on the Ouachita Trail because you can circle back to your car.
