Back Roading

Discover the scenic back-country roads of the Ouachita National Forest! There are more than ten million sport-utility vehicles on the US highways, each designed for back country capabilities. But is is estimated that 90 percent of all sport-utilities never leave the pavement. Our question is, “What are you waiting for?”

The Mena Area offers some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the nation. When you drive through our national forest, you’ll explore remote areas and discover vistas only a handful of people are lucky enough to see each year. Be sure to pack some water and snacks along with your camera since our roads will take you far off the beaten path!

Download and print the US Forestry Motor Vehicle Use Map before you head out! This map is prepared to help guide your travels over hundreds of miles of roads through the National Forest land. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, these roads can be explored with just a four-wheel drive sport-utility or truck and a sense of adventure.
