Highway 23 is a legendary Arkansas highway known as the Pig Trail. The name refers to the wild pigs who carved paths through thick forest growth, creating trails that settlers later adopted. Today those trails are frequented by motorcyclists and sports car enthusiasts for the challenging twisties they offer.
