The Ouachita National Recreation Trail starts at Pinnacle Mountain State Park and eventually snakes 223 miles across Arkansas and into Oklahoma. Part of the trail that runs through Pinnacle uses a disused bit of pavement that once carried traffic on Hwy. 300. It seems like occasionally the park will mow the grass on the old road, but usually its slightly overgrown with weeds and wildflowers. Which might look kinda neat with the infrared camera...


The road leads to an old bridge over the Maumelle River, which was built in the 1940s. The bridge, and the road approaching it, were replaced with a new bridge in the 1980s. The bridge is used by hikers, people fishing, photographers, and (sadly) people who like to vandalize.


And one last shot from Pinnacle. Near the Visitor Center is this wooden walkway, which heads up the hill towards a nice overlook of the Arkansas River.
