Three mile loop that is part of the Hidden Diversity Multi-Use Trail System - Piney Road Access. They call it that because of the diverse combination of geography and anture that can be seen along the way.

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!
