My daughter and I enjoyed it. Nice easy hike with some history.

Hike is fairly easy as most of it is flat ground. Great scenery through the woods, well marked trail. Turnaround point has a great view of Beaver lake.

me and my husband Absolutely loved it

Nice trail, well maintained, well marked with white blazes and fairly gentle grades for this area. Very enjoyable day hike. Bring water and a lunch and make a great day of it!

Good trail well maintained. This is a 9 mile trail per Hobbs State Park.

Neat little historical site. Easy to navigate and more of a trail past the sawmill site. That trail was Too muddy for us but the main walking area is compact gravel, dry, and easy to walk on. Combine with the other trail in the parking lot for a complete opposite adventure.

Great little historical family friendly hike/walk!

Very beautiful and significant history. Nice easy walk

this Trail is geared more toward mountain bikers. There is not a lot of scenery mostly rocks and pine trees and oak trees.

Great rolling terrain in Arkansas woods.
Easy XC MTBing but fast and fun for experienced riders. No jumps or obstacles.

From the brochure "Hidden Diversity Multi-Use Trail" of Hobbs State Park Conservation Area, Arkansas: "The [Hidden Diversity] trail name echoes one of the interpretive themes of the park. With awareness, the diversity of life here inspires wonder and discovery. Bluffs, rocky outcrops, limestone bedrock, caves, sink holes, and even a large fault line add to the area's diversity. A wide range of plant and animal species reside on our dry south slopes and rocky glades as well as in moist, protected ravines and wet-weather streams, yet hundreds or perhaps thousands of still-to-be-discovered living creatures and plants are 'hidden' both on the surface and underground."

I enjoyed this 4.44 mile hike, taking the 'Bashore Ridge' loop of the Hidden Diversity Trail. It is a relatively easy hike, mostly along the ridge tops overlooking hollows and valleys. I hiked this on a winter day, so the trees were barren, yet there is a beauty in the hushed tones of of winter, too. I loved the hike. It was a cool and quiet day, except for the wind shushing through the trees. I only saw one other person the whole time. I heard wild turkeys all around me, but they are sneaky critters, and I only saw one. I also saw a magnificent red-shouldered hawk that watched me imperiously. A great hike!

Nice, easy hike. No major must-sees, but the overlook is pretty, and there is the potential for some really stellar views during leaf-off.

The dog and I finished this pretty quickly (about an hour), so we did the Dutton Loop as well. It was our second time on the Dutton Loop, and I've got to recommend doing both trails on the same day. The contrast between being up on the ridge, and then down in the hollow really highlights the different terrain and plants in this area, and makes both trails more enjoyable.
