About Pig Trail Scenic Byway
Why is this spectacular scenic route called the Pig Trail Scenic Byway? The name is truly significant and was so named by Arkansans who travel it. The meandering nature of the route reminds one of a trail created by pigs wandering through the woods. Another factor that influenced the name, "Pig Trail," was that this route has been a the major travel way for students, sports fans and other University of Arkansas supporters going to and from Fayetteville, Arkansas, home of the Arkansas "Razorbacks." What name could be more appropriate for the highway traveled by a group of rabid Razorback fans, wearing red hog hats and calling "woo-pig-sooee" than Pig Trail Scenic Byway?
Recreationists use the route year-round for various activities including: access to the Mulberry River for canoeing and fishing; hunting in the White Rock Management Area; access to trailhead parking at Cherry Bend for the Ozark Highlands Trail; camping along the White River or at Redding; viewing exquisite fall colors and spring wildflowers; and simply driving and enjoying the scenery.
