The trail is always weedy by late summer. Arkansas Master Naturalists volunteers clear Norfork Trail once annually in early winter with blowers and trimmers, best hiking in winter after its annual maintenance. Summer weeds warrant insect protection against ticks and chiggers. The Norfork Trail follows the western shore of Lake Norfork 13 miles from Norfork Dam to Fish & Fiddle Road, with six trailheads resulting in five 2-3 mile segments. This is a rolling forest trail with occasional lake views. Show more
