Talimena Scenic Byway, is a 54-mile highway that stretches across the very top of the Quachita Mountains winding along the crests of Winding Stair and Rich Mountains.
The drive begins in Mena, Arkansas and follows Ark. 88 to Oklahoma and proceeds to Talihina, Oklahoma, as Okla. 1. Almost the entire Mena-Talihina route travels through the Quachita National Forest.
