Now for some Arkansas Property that belongs to all of us, Withrow Springs State Park, near Huntsville. Last fall Fayetteville’s Free Weekly published a piece I did on a day there. An excerpt:
It was truly the perfect fall morning, and we never saw another hiker. The hike took us a leisurely three hours, including a good hour at the playground, and everyone was still in a great mood. Possibly the only drawback to the trails is the noise from the constant stream of motorcycles headed to and from Eureka Springs, but I imagine on any day other than a Saturday there is significantly less traffic. Even with that noise, though, the well-marked trails, frequent wooden benches to rest on and multiple bathrooms along the path make it a hiking loop that’s hard to beat if you’ve got little kids. The cliffs and slight slope also make it more enjoyable than the typical flat paved kids’ trail.
