Lake Ouachita Vista Trail -- Shangri-La Trailhead

The trail crosses many 400-hundred-year-old short leaf pines. There is a spur trail off this leg of the trail that is a 1.5-mile loop out to Eagle Vista that provides a view of the lake that, during the winter months, is home to several bald eagles. Named an Epic Ride by IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) in 2014.
