Yell County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: November 18, 2007
We approached this from the south on NFR 18. The junction with AR 80 is between
Blue Ball and Waltreak. Watch closely for NFR 18. We went past it and had to
turn around and come back. We mistook the narrow lane for a private drive the
At 5.4 miles up NFR 18 turn on NFR 3, which had been recently regraded.
The washouts and deep ruts were gone and the road was in good condition for a forest road.
Zero your odometer here. We found the overlook described in Hans
Haustein's report to be 2.4 miles up NFR 3. At 3.5 miles we reached the
junction with NFR 133 and turned right to head north on it. Finally, at 4.3
miles, an inconspicuous wilderness boundary sign appeared at a turnoff that is
now bermed. Park here. You are now just a few dozen yards from the highest
point in Yell County.
