Getting There

HUNTING SEASON CLOSURE: This area is subject to seasonal closure for hunting. For more information, please visit https://www.agfc.com/en/zone-map/710/. This easy trail begins at the Visitor Center, on the east side. Parking is on the west side of the building. The trail has two different loops; an inner wider concrete surfaced quarter-mile section, and an outer "challenge" loop which is now concrete as well adds about one-half mile. Wayside panels inform visitors about the plants, animals, and geology of the area. An enlarged overlook area provides a view of a narrow hollow with a small spring and pools of water where wild critters come to drink. The trail winds around and through large pine and oak trees, and the forest floor covered with various understory plants and wildflowers. Accessibility: There are 3 designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of AR-12 at the west end of the trail. Two of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved, smooth, and typically at least 4 feet wide. The estimated grade is mostly gentle (5% or less) except for moderately steep to steep (6-12%) uphill and downhill sections at about 0.3, and 0.5 through 0.6 miles when going counterclockwise. Trail goers using wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers may need assistance in the steeper sections or to avoid them for safety. There are benches along the route for resting.

Very nice, full blown Visitors Center with Bus Parking.

Wanted to hike some of their longer trails but were closed due to hunting season. Suggest call ahead and get latest info. This short trail was very pretty as it winds its way through woodlands behind visitors center. ADA accessible.

Nothing spectacular but if you are in the area hiking or mountain biking one of the many trails in the area it is worth stopping. It is a short, paved trail with plenty of benches along the way to stop and relax.

Nice paved trail right outside the nature center. Definitely not a "destination hike," but if you're at the nature center anyway, it's worth checking out.

First to Review

A great walk for all ages before or after checking out the visitors center. Has the option of an outer loop to add a little distance if you like. Concrete paths all the way so bring Granny in her wheelvchair for a nice stroll.
