Pig Trail

Pig Trail Scenic Byway: wind through the Boston and Ozark Mountains

The rugged and forested Boston Mountains region of the Arkansas Ozark Mountains provides the setting for the Pig Trail, which often runs through a tunnel of foliage during spring, summer and fall. Spring wildflowers and brilliant autumn foliage make the scenic route especially popular during those seasons of the year – whether you ride or drive. The route crosses the Mulberry River and the 165-mile Ozark Highlands Trail.
