We’re happy to announce that there is a set of new Trail maps available for download. You can find these links at the bottom of The Big Picture page. Files are in PDF format and include a single PDF document containing the LOViT East and LOViT West maps, along with a set of segment maps. All maps are relatively high resolution and could be printed on up to 11″x17″ paper. We know of a few changes we need to make, and there are a couple of benches missing from the segment maps, but if you find anything we should know about, please drop us an email or contact us through our Facebook page. Have fun, and be safe on the Trail.Click to read the full article
BE AWARE OF HUNTING ON THE TRAIL!
The Lake Ouachita Vista Trail traverses U.S. Forest lands that have long been popular hunting grounds in all seasons. All Trail users should be aware of these activities and not wear clothing that could be mistaken for wildlife. Bright colors and hunter orange eliminate most instances of mistaken identity.
BE AWARE IT'S HUNTING SEASON - WEAR ORANGE ON THE TRAIL!
We would like to remind everyone that modern gun deer season opens on November 9, 2019, and continues through December 1 in the Ouachita National Forest along the LOViT. Dogs are allowed to be used hunting for deer during this time. A second modern gun season is December 26-28. Note also these deer hunting dates: Archery - Sept. 28, 2019, through Feb. 29, 2020; Muzzleloader - Oct. 19-27 and Dec. 14-16; Youth modern gun hunt - Nov. 2-3, 2019, and Jan. 4-5, 2020. Be especially careful and be sure to wear orange if you decide to hike or bike on the Trail during these times. We don't want anyone to get hurt or to cause conflicts between Trail users and hunters.

Here’s a quick post to report on progress in building a new website for the Lake Ouachita Vista Trail. Most of the skeleton pages have been created, the color scheme is done, menus top and bottom are all working, and the Big Picture table is starting to come together. There are a few problems, and the content needs to be added and photographs need to be incorporated into the articles. But, progress is being made. Feel free to contact me using the link on the right-hand side of the Home page if you have any ideas for improving this site.Click to read the full article
This is a heads up that we’re now not only working on new trails and cleaning up the existing ones, but we’re also working on the web site, placing it on a “Content Management System” called “WordPress”. We’re hoping the site will be easier to update and extend as a result and will bring you more information about current events and activities on the Trail. Have fun, and be safe, LOViT TraildogsClick to read the full article
