This is a very unique property that provides direct access to the Ouachita National Forest with endless horseback riding and side by side trails as well as some of the best hunting in Oklahoma.

In the 1800’s this area was a part of Indian Territory and was a well-known hangout for outlaws and horse thieves trying to escape the justice of Judge Parker in near-by Fort Smith, Arkansas.

The mountain views from this property are spectacular.
