The dirt road from Lake Fort Smith to White Rock (where you need to park your return Vehicle) is not in bad shape, but plan on a 50 minute drive.

Hiked this trail in early April with my wife and 3 kids (10, 8, and 7 years old). hiked about 6-7 miles a day. The kids carried all their own stuff and had no problems keeping up. Awesome trip. The trail is well marked and plenty of campsites. The creeks are pretty and require getting your feet wet to cross. And the elevation changes aren't too extreme. White Rock is a great place to end a long hike. Beautiful view!
