Ascent Trip ReportOn Saturday we were up before sunrise and headed out to Rich Mountain. I had picked out a spot on Fire Road 514 where we could do a run in both AR and OK. It was a bit chilly but the run on dirt road was fun (45:23). We also spotted a benchmark at the trailhead for the Ouachita trail, but decided that the trail was a bit rough and the road would be okay for running. It was quite foggy when we drove up to Rich Mountain (fire tower, benchmark, and county high point). Basically you can park within 50 meters of the top. We took a couple of pictures and headed for our next destination.
