Please add anymore information to share with riders that weve not asked you already:
The Talimena Scenic drive winds 54 miles along the crest of Rich Mountain and Winding Stair Mountain in the Ouachita National Forest (pronounced Wash-i-tah). The route takes 1 hour and 10 minutes to drive without any stops. Personally, I've never completed this ride in less than 2 hours. Just too many places to pull off the road and enjoy the scenery.
