It has some tough inclines, but was a joy to home through!

I go on this trail often. My only complaint is in some spots it's really overgrown and almost hard to tell what is the trail and what is just the forest. it's not marked out very well but no matter what way you go it's simply to find your way back to the beginning. it's definitely beautiful and great exercise

November, got to the trail head only did a over a 1/2 mile and lost the trail and ran into some hunters. So turned around and went back. Going to try this trail in April. Look fun though.

Hiked this in June. Most of the trail is overgrown and ticks, ticks, ticks!

Another one of my favorites. Did my first solo overnighter at the little campground earlier this year around April time frame. Had an absolute amazing night, turkeys called, coyotes answered, turkeys shut up haha. no ticks, that time.
Went back in August with intentions of another overnighter. uhh.. yeah that didn't happen. Got to the campground again and was just covered in ticks it was horrible. Shoulda known better honestly. That was with spray and the like. I am planning to go sometime in the next few weeks, hoping to catch the last bit of color before it all gets drab.

Keep hiking, you just might find yourself.

First time at Siloam Springs. Didn't have a trail map, but not a huge deal. Trail starts out at an old wooden bridge just past the archery range. Trail was easy to follow, not well marked but not an issue. Starts out with a pretty decent uphill stretch, but fairly easy run.
