This website will provide updates to my books on trails in Little Rock and Central Arkansas. It is also my hope that it will serve as a place to discuss plans for new trails throughout Arkansas. If you have a trail idea or issue that you would like to see discussed let me know. I'll be happy to credit you or give people your contact info. Feedback on content you'd like to see and site design is much appreciated.
The Old Railroad Trail in Gilbert, is a great hike to do with kids. At less than 4 miles in-and-out, this mostly flat trail has interesting rock walls, views of the Buffalo River, and large remnants of its not-too-distant railroad past. I usually get my kicks by checking out the cacti and other amazing plants along this trail and skipping rocks at the river, but when I went with friends in Feb. 2013, we were directed by a friendly gentleman on horseback to a bobcat hiding in a tight crevice in one of the rock walls!
If anyone ever climbs to the top they will find the rocks we threw
