I had an awesome day today. I hiked 8 miles of the Ouachita Trail from Talimena State Park to Deadmans Gap. I then backtracked and took the Bohannon trail to the Chickasaw Nation Trail which I followed back to Talimena State Park. I was on trail for 20 miles and had an elevation change of 2,864 feet. I completed the last 3.5 miles in the dark with light rain. The Ouachita Trail was in great shape and well marked. The Bohannon and Chickasaw Nation Trails will test your navigation skills. The short walk off trail to Panorama Vista is a must, the view should not be missed.
