English Sugar Creek Vista Overlook

The Sugar Creek Vista Overlook is a historic scenic overlook in Ouachita National Forest. It is located on Polk County Road 64 (also once designated Forest Road 38), just south of Dicks Gap. The overlook is a simple roadside pullout on the west side of the road, with an angular retaining wall about 84 feet (26 m) long. The wall was built out of quarried novaculite stone set with grapevine mortar joints in 1935 by a crew of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). It is one of only two CCC-built overlooks in the national forest, and the only one built with these particular materials.The site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.
