great trail only 2 sources of water from very small ponds.you will need good water treatment system if staying over night. found some water coming out of ground, ice cold and clear, about 2 miles in from first pond in a gully. ?spring?

This is one of my favorite trails in Arkansas. The trail is marked very well for the majority of the hike but, once you get into the rocky areas, it gets a little harder to find your way. There is a great little campsite around 3 miles but not much water at all. The best part of this area is all of the different types of terrain you will encounter. Much of the trail is steep and rocky but you come to some really cool, flat, grassy areas when you would least expect them. Add in the old homestead about 3/4 of a mile away from the summit and there's a little something for everyone. Be warned though, there is a pretty good population of bears up there so don't be surprised if you're not by yourself!
