Big Spring Walking Trail

October, 2014 by pandas39

I ran this trail from His Place Resort all the way to the Big Spring Park in the morning. The trail consists of grey, crushed hard gravel, great for walking, running or biking. They even had a bench about a mile from my cabin. You can see the river for most of the way but its starts to get farther away as you head toward the park. Then as you get closer to the park, the River comes back into the view.
I wasn’t the only person out on the trail, there was a county truck checking out the trail and two other mountain bikers.
There is a rock cliff wall on the other side that overlooks the River. I even spotted two small caves that were right at the end of the trail. The trail is covered by tall trees so it was nice and cool for my run.
I was really excited I didn't have to drive somewhere to get in my run that morning. I heard it continues on once you pass the gate near the campgrounds but I didn't get to check it out.

Big Spring Nature Trail

Cotter Arkansas RTC

December, 2012 by joechum

Camping with the family at Denton Ferry, I took my son on a hike along the RTC to Cotter, Arkansas. It is a very quiet, peaceful trail along the White River with opportunity to spot wildlife and enjoy nature. The trail is well maintained, and ideal for hiking or mountain biking.

The park and swimming hole in Cotter make for a nice destination for a picnic, trout fishing and enjoying small town Arkansas.
