奥沙克山(Ozark Mountains)位于东部的阿帕拉契山区及西部的洛矶山脉间,它是两山之间的最大山脉。

阿肯色州的奥沙克山也许曾被命名为Aux Arc,这是1700年代时,当地的一个法国交易站;在法国,Aux Arc意即「鞠躬」(at the bow)。当地的石灰岩极容易被侵蚀,而且是许多独特地理景观的成因,如:洞穴、排水口及地下溪流;奥沙克地区也以民俗工艺及户外活动而闻名。

The Ozark Mountains of Arkansas are the largest mountain range between the Appalachian Mountains in the East and the Rocky Mountains in the West.

The Ozark Mountains of Arkansas may have been named for Aux Arc, a French trading post located there in the 1700s. In French, Aux Arc means "at the bow." The limestone that is found there wears away easily and is responsible for many unusual geographic features, such as caves, sinkholes and underground streams. The Ozarks region is also known for its folk crafts and outdoor recreation.
