North Sylamore Creek: Barkshed to Allison (AR 5) is a 3.1 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Fifty-Six, Arkansas that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, camping, and whitewater kayaking and is accessible year-round.
Barkshed to Allison (at the White River) isn't 4 miles but a little over 13 total. Great hike. Barkshed to Gunner Pool to Blanchard then on to Allison!
Hiked from Blanchard Springs to Barkshed – plenty of variety and lots of great views! Parts of trail are right alongside creek, others are on top of bluffs. Hard to say whether segment from Blanchard to Gunner Pool or from Gunner Pool to Barkshed is more enjoyable.
Needed some trail maintenance done, but the scenery was spectacular.
The Sylamore never disappoints.
