The Talimena Scenic Drive traverses the Ouachita Mountains in Oklahoma, part of the U.S. Interior Highlands region.

The U.S. Interior Highlands is a mountainous region spanning eastern Oklahoma, western and northern Arkansas, southern Missouri, and the extreme southeast corner of Kansas. The name is designated by the United States Geological Survey to refer to the combined mountainous region of the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains, which form a distinct physiographic division.[1] It is the only major highland region between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States.[2][3]

The region is occupied by the Ozark mountain forests, an ecoregion of temperate broadleaf and mixed forests. Parts of the area are covered by three national forests: The Ouachita National Forest in Oklahoma and Arkansas, the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest in Arkansas, and the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri.
