HI HIKERS

 

 

 

Monday, February 26th, we will plan to hike 3 trails at Hobbs State Park.  The weather is looking good for Monday with a projected high of 75 degrees.

 

We'll begin with a couple of easy ones for those of you that want to get back into hiking but want to start out more slowly.

 

The first hike will be on the Historic Van Winkle Trail.  It's a short 0.6 mile trail that is rated easy.  The Arkansas State Park Site describes it as follows:

 

Interpretive sign panels describe the historic home and mill sites of the Peter Van Winkle family during and after the Civil War. Also, there is a beautiful stream, spring and raised garden site. Only some rock foundation stones remain of buildings.

 

The second hike will be on the Sinking Stream Trail on the opposite side of the highway.  It is a short 0.5 mile loop.  The Arkansas State Park site describes it as follows:

 

This short and easy trail is a loop, upstream from the tunnel under Hwy 12. It goes up one side of Little Clifty Creek, crosses 3 bridges, then returns on the other side. It is natural surface, single track, for foot traffic only. The trail follows old level road beds, except for a couple hundred yards on west side hill. The upstream portion of the creek sinks under the rocks during dry spells, then re-emerges further on downstream. A nice spring on the west side runs all year. One of the three Scout bridges crosses this spring flow, just below some small beaver dams. Spring flowers abound here, before the large sycamore, oak, hickory trees, and spice bush, shade them out. Lots of birds, deer, and other wildlife love this area, and can be seen if you are quiet.

 

The third hike will be on the Shaddox Hollow Trail.  AllTrails classifies this one as moderately challenging.   It is a 1.4 mile loop trail.  The Arkansas State Park site describes it as follows:

 

The first 1/2 mile of this loop trail follows a ridgeline, providing an easy hike. The trail then descends into Shaddox Hollow. The descent is rather steep in places. The trail winds along the creek through stands of hardwoods and native Ozark vegetation. Some interesting limestone bluffs are found along this section. After progressing up the creek, the trail begins the climb back to the trailhead. This climb can be strenuous in places.

 

We'll plan to leave from Center Stage in Eureka Springs promptly at 10:00 am. It's a 30 minute drive to the Hobs State Park Visitors Center.  We'll stop there for a restroom break and to meet up with anyone travelling in from the south or west.

 

After the hikes, it is a short drive into Rogers for lunch.  If anyone has restaurant recommendations, please let us know.  The Havana Tropical Grill in Rogers has been a popular site after previous hikes however, parking is limited and it gets a bit crowded at lunch.

 

Hope to see you there.
