Realtor’s Comments: This property is a horseman’s dream and a hunter’s paradise. This is a very unique property that provides direct access to the Ouachita National Forest with endless horseback riding and side by side trails as well as some of the best hunting in Oklahoma. The “Old Military Road” constructed in the 1830’s that connected Fort Smith to Fort Towson lies just a few miles West of the property. In the 1800’s this area was a part of Indian Territory and was a well-known hangout for outlaws and horse thieves trying to escape the justice of Judge Parker in near-by Fort Smith, Arkansas. Horse Thief Springs lies just a few miles West of this property in the National Forest. There are literally thousands of acres of untouched natural beauty that can be accessed from this property. Cedar Lake, where the last two State record largemouth bass were caught, is a short 15 minute drive from the property. It is the ideal setting for a relaxing and peaceful weekend getaway from city life or even a full time residence. No traffic, no hurrying, just simple life away from the hectic city. The mountain views from this property are spectacular.
