This stretch of Ozark Highlands Trail (OHT) Sylamore Section spans milepoints 14-18. The OHT is a 32 mile linear thru-trail, a link in the 800-mile Trans Ozark Trail, under construction and 80% complete. The OHT generally parallels scenic Arkansas Highway 341, also known as Push Mountain Road. The 32-mile OHT Sylamore Section has seven trailheads, with access to remote, off-trail seasonal waterfalls scattered through the Ozark National Forest. At milepoint 14, the Cripple Turkey Road trailhead is a junction with the 23-mile North Sylamore Creek Trail, which follows Sylamore Creek on its southwesterly course to the White River. The two trails form a 55 mile trail network through the most rugged and remote peaks and hollows in the Ozark Mountains, mostly national forest land.

Nice woodland trail, some interesting limestone formations, but lacks long range vistas of some of the other OHT sections. OHT is very popular with trail runners, lightly traffic'd and classic forest path.
