DescriptionThe Ouachita Mountain region of Arkansas is a rugged, timbered area extending fanwise from Little Rock westward to the Oklahoma state line. The Arkansas River form the northern boundary, and the southernmost ridges of the Ouachita Mountains approximate the southern limits of the area (map, fig. 3). It includes all 9 counties and part of 3 others, totaling 4,917,700 acres. All but a very small portion of the Ouachita National Forest within the State of Arkansas is included in this unit. The cities of Little Rock and Fort Smith, both on the Arkansas River, are important industrially, while Hot Springs is widely known as a health resort.
