Drive the Talimena National Scenic Byway

The Talimena National Scenic Byway, a breathtaking 54-mile route in southeast Oklahoma, is known for its spectacular fall foliage. Designated by the U.S. Department of Transportation as an official National Scenic Byway, the Talimena Drive was built specifically to highlight the area’s beautiful foliage and spans one of the highest mountain ranges between the Appalachians and the Rockies.

Weaving through the brightly-colored trees of the Ouachita National Forest, Talimena National Scenic Byway is the perfect route to take in your RV this fall as you travel through southeast Oklahoma. The views don’t get better than this. Don’t forget to pack your picnic supplies, because there are numerous overlooks to stop at and stretch your legs and to enjoy a good meal.

Stretching between Talihina, Oklahoma, and Mena, Arkansas, the Talimena National Scenic Byway hugs the slopes and peaks of the mountains as you travel it, offering stunning panoramic views of fall forest sprawling to the horizon in all directions.

Awash in vibrant shades of red and gold, the forested slopes that surround the Talimena Drive have made this scenic byway an autumn hot spot and the crown jewel of the region. Numerous viewpoints and scenic turnoffs along the Talimena National Scenic Byway provide visitors with spectacular views of the fall color change.
