The Pig Trail Scenic Byway is a Forest Service Scenic Byway. Beginning in the southeast corner of the Ozark National Forest near I-40, The Byway extends north along Highway 23 for 19 miles to Highway 16 at Brashears. With its many steep inclines and sharp curves, driving the Pig Trail may be likened to riding a roller coaster. Trees crowd the roadside, creating a shady corridor during the summer in some areas and display stunning fall color. Very little development has occurred along this route, offering travelers a glimpse of the Ozarks that would have been familiar to the early settlers.
