»Eagle Rock Loop BackpackEagle Rock Loop BackpackJoin me on a three day backpack on the longest loop trail (27 miles) in Arkansas. A combination of parts of the Little Missouri Trail, the Athens-Big Fork Trail and the Viles Branch Trail, the Eagle Rock Loop Trail crosses the Little Missouri River several times and travels over six major ridges. The hike will combine steep hill climbs through mixed hardwood and pine forests with strolls along crystal clear streams.  It is arguably one of the best hikes in the Ouachita Mountains. Points of interest include Little Missouri Falls, Spirit Rock Vista, Eagle Rock Vista and Winding Stairs. Participants should have some backpacking experience. TRIP RATING: STRENUOUS (due to elevation changes along the Athens-Big Fork Trail and the amount of miles covered). Please contact the trip leader to sign up.

»Day Hike Around White Rock LakeDay Hike Around White Rock LakeLet`s meet at the Stone Tables at White Rock Lake near Lake Highlands Drive and Buckner Blvd. From the intersection of Lake Highlands and Buckner, turn southwest on E. Lake Highlands. Take an immediate left (south) on Tiffany Way, then an immediate right on E. Lawther. There is a sign here but it now says "one Tables." The hike will start at 9:00am. We’ll walk 9 miles in about 3 hrs on a paved path. This is a good conditioning hike for the upcoming Fall backpack trips. Bring water and snacks. No reservations necessary. There will be an optional lunch at a local restaurant after the hike.

»Car Camping in the Winding Stair Area in OklahomaCar Camping in the Winding Stair Area in OklahomaWe'll try to catch the fall colors in this beautiful part of the Ouachita Mountains this weekend.  On Saturday, we will hike about 9 to 10 miles on a loop trail in the Horse Thief Springs area.  The hike will be downhill into the Holson Valley in the morning, and uphill back to the cars in the afternoon.  The day hike includes about 1900 feet of elevation change.  There will also be a short day hike on Sunday morning before heading home.  Because of the length and terrain of the day hike, this trip is rated as moderately strenuous.  Note that the campsite is semi-primitive, and has no water.  Contact the leader to sign up.
