Lake Fort Smith is the western end of the Ozark Highlands Trail which stretches about 200 miles through the Ozark National Forest and along a portion of the Buffalo National River. After approximately 2 1/2 miles of sharing the same route, by a bench above Lake Fort Smith, the Evans Point Loop branches to the left and circles the lake to return to the park. This trail was named for early settlers of the area. It offers excellent views, outstanding fall colors, old home sites, and wildlife such as wild turkey and deer.
Directions: From Mountainburg, Go north on U.S. 71. Watch for the park access sign on U.S. 71, then travel 1/2 mile east to the park.
Distance: 6 miles
