I'll be spending some time in North Dallas for a while (work related). I know this area is super-flat, so I'm not expecting anything like where I'm at in the West. But, are there any areas to hike / backpack / back-country-camp in a 3-4 hour drive from Dallas? Anyone have any experience with the Ouachita Mountains in SW OK (and into AR)?

THANKS!

south eastern Oklahoma has some nice forest(the Kiameche Forest)

Broken Bow, Ok and north of there...

Beaver's Bend SP has a visitor's Center(or at east it used to) where you can get charts and learn about the area

take US 259A east from US 259 just north of Broken Bow

lotsa logging/fire roads that require 4wd or 2-wheels w/ knobbly tyres

not personally sure/knowledgeable about back country camping permits

Palo Duro Canyon (and the surrounding area) looks awesome! And, the Broken Bow area looks very nice and someplace I'll also check out. Thanks all!

Broken Bow and Beaver Bend are stunningly beautiful year round. Definitely a lot of hiking in the area.

Doing some more Google searches, it looks like the Wichita Mountains (and surrounding areas) look promising, too...looking forward to exploring some new places!
