Completed Barkshed to Allison yesterday. The trails were very well maintained and we only ran into 4 humans on the trails! Please note: The total trip was 13.75 miles not 3.1 as shown on this site.
Camping on Sylamore Creek the night before was just the icing on the cake! The most beautiful hike in Arkansas!

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.
