In addition to enjoying the many back roads all around Arkansas, we also enjoy hiking the numorous hiking trails. Below you will find the trails we have been on recently.

03/19/17 - Hot Springs Mountain Loop 2  This trail actually consist of parts of a few different trails. You start by going down part of the Gulpha Gorge Trails and then split off onto the Goat Rock Trail. Goat Rock Trail goes for about 1.1 miles and then intersects with the Upper Dogwood Trail. We followed the Upper Dogwood Trail until it briefly merges with the Lower Dogwood Trail and then joins up with the Hot Springs Mountain Trail for the return to where we parked. This loop was about 2.55 miles long and included some really nice mountain and wooded views. Check out the  Media  page for a few pictures of the trip!

03/04/17 - Brady Mountain Resort:  Not really a big trail, but a good walk at  Brady Mountain Resort . It was about two miles, if you exclude the weird spike that implies we walked across the water and back. We started at the overlook and went down the stairs to the shore. We then walked around the shore and back up to the main road. We crossed the road and started on the trail that follows the shore around to the camp site pavilion. From there, we walked to the beach, boat ramp, and then followed the road back to the vista area.  We have added a couple of pictures of our journey to the  Media  page!
