Lake Ouachita Vista Trail

The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail (LOViT) includes over 40 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails along the shores of Lake Ouachita. The trail was built in sections and is a joint effort of many groups in the area to link the resorts and campgrounds around Lake Ouachita together via a trail system. The trail meanders through the Ouachita National Forest with spurs providing lake vistas. Named an Epic Ride by IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) in 2014.
