NEW OHT GUIDE 7th EDITION available NOW (November 2021) as an ebook only $9.95!

We have a brand new edition of the Ozark Highlands Trail Guidebook (#7, screech owl on cover) completed and being printed in Chicago that will be available sometime in January (paperback version $19.95). This expanded edition includes the newest 43.7 miles of trail (aka the Buffalo River Trail, downstream sections from Woolum to Dillards Ferry/Hwy. 14). This means there is now 207.6 miles of continuous trail from Lake Ft. Smith State Park to Dillards Ferry/Hwy. 14 - YIPPIE!

This newest edition is available as an ebook NOW on Amazon (read on the free Kindle app available for most mobile devices and computers), and on Barnes & Noble (read on the free Nook app available for most mobile devices and some computers). Either ebook is only $9.95!

*At the moment we recommend the Kindle version because the formatting and hot links seem to all be correct and everything looks GREAT! The Nook version may not format perfectly on some devices - our epub original file for both is fine, but the Nook version has some extra blank spaces and pages on our phones - all the data is the same on either version. We may have this available on Apple Books one day but not yet.

Besides the three new sections of the OHT, each with maps, elevations profiles, mileage tables, and complete hiking descriptions, you not only get GPS coordinates for all trailheads and many important points along the trail, but also HOT LINKS FOR TRAILHEADS - this means one click will brring up the trailhead location on Google maps and you can get directions to it from your location!
