7 Reasons To Drop Everything And Visit Arkansas’ Small But Mighty Forest
The National Forest system in the United States covers an amazing 188,336,179 acres from coast to coast. The national forests in Arkansas take up a whopping 13% of the state, which is a good reason why we’re known as the Natural State. The St. Francis National Forest is so small it’s usually just considered a part of the Ozarks (hence the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest). Just because this forest is rather small compared to others in the U.S. doesn’t mean it isn’t worth the trip. Let’s explore this tiny but mighty forest and see what actives we can do.
