One Tank Travels: Mount Ida
Today’s Trip: Hot Springs to Mount Ida
Mount Ida is surrounded by the beautiful Ouachita National Forest,so outdoor adventure is a highlight of a visit to town.
For starters, there is the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOVEiT). This trail consists of a number of trail segments, along with some short out-and-back or loop spurs leading off a trail segment. Many trailhead signs can be seen along Hwy 270 for the different routes. The Traildogs ( the never tiring group of volunteers that work on the trail) have a very resourceful website if you might want to learn more about the history of the trail or the different routes.
