The OHT is a 285-mile National Recreation Trail that stretches across one of Arkansas’ most scenic regions, the Ozark Plateau. Our three-part topographic Backcountry Maps, Thru-Hiker Series, covers it in dramatic detail from the highest, rugged ridges in the west to gently rolling hills in the north. These three maps are the only recreationally focused topographic maps of the Ozark National Forest in Arkansas. No matter what section of the OHT you want to hike, or which part of the forest you want to explore, these maps will get you there, beautifully.
