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.

Hiked this trail as part of the Ouachita - Boardstand - Old Military Loop. Good condition overall with only some slight overgrowth and briars on the north side of the mountain just before the Scenic Drive.

The Old Military Road / Boardstand Path/ Ouachita Mountain Trail collectively form a looped hike of about 23 miles, overlapping with many other routes such as the Choctaw Nation Trail and Panorama Vista, through Talimena State Park—and is argued to be the best hike through the hills of Oklahoma. There are a couple instances towards the end that can be confusing: during the final decent to Talihina State Park, there are intermittent yellow blazes because the INT criss-crosses the Ouachita trail several times, but will close on its self where the Ouachita Trail intersects the Old Military Trail. All state park offices were closed except for central location; we saw no water sources on the route, mostly overcast and cold with strong winds in more open areas/higher elevation. Took us about 10 hours to complete. Not the best scenery in the winter, of course, but still very enjoyable.

This trail is in my back yard most my life, have done it several times with several different thoughts. If the weather is wet and rainy expect alot of water crossings and mud that normally is not there. also in regards to the trees being down. this happens from time to time when bad weather and ice storms wreck this part of the state. But in general this is a really nice trail that isnt use alot. able to get out and spend time with nature and make it a good two or three day hike when connected to the broad stand trail loop.
