Sylamore Ranger District
The 1.2-million acre Ozark-St. Francis National Forests offer endless opportunities for adventure. As one of America's most scenic and picturesque areas, the Ozark-St. Francis provides a lot of the "natural" in the Natural State of Arkansas.
Ozark Highlands 50K
The course will start out at Norfork River Resort and proceed towards the Ozark Highlands Trail via 2.7 miles of rolling roads. The trail traverses through numerous hollows and takes participants across some of the most rugged and remote terrain in the Ozark National Forest. Runners will follow the Ozark Highlands Trail-Sylamore Section on an out & back course. There are three aid stations on the route and drop bags are allowed at the Twin Creek Aid Station, which is also the turnaround for the shorter 35K course.
Twin Creek 35K
This course option will follow the same route as the Ozark Highlands 50K, but turnaround at Twin Creek Road Aid Station. Great idea for those wanting to experience the Sylamore Ranger District trails, but not quite ready for the 50K.
Norfork River Resort
