Although there are several different hiking trails in the area, the Ozark Trail is one of the most popular. It is a great way to explore the river valleys, forests, and mountains of the region. Hikers should be prepared with proper gear, food, and water when hiking on this trail. They should also carry a map and compass, as many of the areas along the trail are not well-marked. The trail is a great choice for those looking for a relaxing, peaceful getaway.
In 1913, William Hope Harvey of Arkansas established the Ozark Trails association. The purpose of this organization was to mark and promote automobile routes across several states. Its members included representatives from Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri.
At its annual meeting in 1920, the Ozark Trails Association agreed to follow the lead of the national group in placing highway markers on the route. These concrete monuments were placed in Collingsworth, Childress, Hall, Briscoe, Swisher and Castro counties in Texas. In addition, they were installed in parts of Lincoln and Parmer counties in Oklahoma.
These monuments are a reminder of the importance of preserving this historic hiking trail. The Ozark Trail is a national treasure and should be protected for years to come.
