The Friendship Trail is a nice, short, paved loop trail that starts at the Jessieville Visitor Information Center (U.S. Forest Service) with the turn around at a nice pond and pavilion. The map locator shows the location basically at Jessieville school, however you must continue north on Highway 7 for another half mile and the Visitor Center and Parking Lot are on your left. ADA compliant and designed with input from a local non-profit, Spa Area Independent Living, located in Hot Springs. Perfect for strollers and wheelchairs.

Pave walk, great for ADA accessibility. Not many of those. Just a brief walk to stretch legs.

This trail is great for any ages, especially older folks in the local HSV area. Everything is paved. Plenty of Parking at the trailhead. Great Fish Pond at the end. Has a canopy, grill and tables to have lunch. Ran it quickly. Walk would probably take 15-20. Be sure to hang at the pond for at least as long as you spend hiking!

This is basically just a short sidewalk in the woods. Not much going on along the trail. If you follow a faint dirt path behind the pavilion at the top, though, it will lead you to a whole network of access roads. There is some fun to be had on those. It is all double track, but it actually makes for some fun MTBing. Lots of speed!
