Talimena Scenic Drive

TALIHINA, OK – Stretching across the top of a mountain ridge at an elevation of 2000 to 3000 feet, the Talimena Scenic Drive is hands down the best place in Oklahoma to view fall foliage. Listed as one of America's National Scenic Byways, the 60-mile drive winds through the beautiful Ouachita National Forest and the majestic Kiamichi Mountains, connecting Talihina, Oklahoma to Mena, Arkansas. The Talimena Drive reminds me a lot of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, and is spectacular any time of year.
