    Jon Smith reviewed Beaver Lake Loop Trail

    19 days ago

    On the plus side, we saw whitetail deer, a box turtle and countless grey squirrels; plenty of wildlife. And who doesn’t love a field of ripe wild raspberries?! We even took time to swim in the clear waters of Beaver Lake at a cove beside the trail. It’s a lovely hike, no doubt. That said, the trail is not always marked clearly, the raspberries have nearly taken over at one point and the ticks—both deer and seed—have got a firm claim to the area. All in all, however, it was well worth the effort.

    There is a back country camping area on the map, but we were led to believe it is not open for use.

    Also, not sure how it comes over at 4.7 miles. We recorded it at 5.1 and the ranger we spoke to said it’s closer to 6. For Boy Scouts there is a trail patch available through the West Arkansas Council. See their website for details.

    Jon Smith reviewed Triple Falls Trail

    So. Many. Chiggers. And the safety cable across the top of the falls is down. It’s beautiful up there, but a fall would be lethal. The bottom of the falls is nice as well, but several unruly scouts were tossed rocks of the top creating an unsafe environment. I spoke with them, gently at the top of my lungs and from the look on their faces when we met on the trail shortly afterwards, I believe they got the message. Camp Orr is, I believe making repairs to the trail soon. Not sure why it’s called Triple Falls Trail here in the app, there were only 2 on the day I was there, one a mere trickle. Sign at the trailhead calls it Twin Falls.

    I’ve done it as a day hike and as a 3 day backpacking trek and both were enjoyable. The trail is well marked in most places, but you’ll probably miss a turn and a couple hundred yards to your total somewhere. Pretty in most areas, Quaill Valley is outright beautiful. Watch out for ticks and poison ivy though, they’re plentiful in summer months. The BHT is wonderfully rugged and not always close to water, so bring extra and/or a water filter or purifier of some kind. Cell service is blessedly limited as well, so be sure to fill out the required (free) permit at the ranger station before going.
