Situated mainly within three states, the 60,000 square mile Ozark Plateau stretches from eastern Oklahoma to southern Missouri to northern Arkansas. The Ozark Mountains, rising to a height of 2,560 feet in Arkansas' Boston Mountains, represent the largest area of highlands between the Appalachians and the Rockies. These rolling hills and low mountains offer rugged terrain, eroded by water from springs and rivers flowing on a journey to the Mississippi River.
Sparsely populated, the Ozark region is unknown to many people, conjuring up scenes of pioneer cabins among the vast hardwood tree cover, where life takes on a slower pace. It is indeed a place where you can get glimpses of an earlier way of life, but it also holds many beautiful, scenic discoveries within its rolling landscape.
