Walking and Hiking Trails in NW Arkansas

Ozark Highland Trail
This is probably the finest hiking trail in Arkansas. It has been rated as one of the top-10 trails in the United States. It has everything: Wonderful vistas; terrific stream side walks; lots of deep green pools to swim in; bluffs and rocks and boulders galore; forests that go on forever; and literally hundreds and hundreds of waterfalls. The list goes on and on. Itís 165 miles from end to end, with 27 additional miles of connecting spurs and loops, so it makes for a great long-distance backpacking trail. The trail passes through 17 campgrounds and other trail heads, and crosses some 50+ forest roads and highways-all of these access points make it the perfect day hiking trail too-just decide how far you want to hike and youíll find several sections between these points that fit your bill.
