Arkansas native, Carol Ann Carson, has written for OnlyInYourState for three years now. She resides in Western Arkansas' Mountain Frontier but calls NWA home as well. The graduate of University of Arkansas - Fort Smith, Carol Ann earned her B.A. in English and will soon be pursing her M.A. in Library Science. She loves exploring the trails around the Buffalo National River and has yet to find a waterfall that wasn't her favorite.
There may not be trolls under the bridge, nor a yellow-brick path to follow but the forest we’re looking at today still feels like the setting for a storybook. The Hot Springs National Park protects an ancient forest that is one of the most beautiful in the state. Let’s watch out for grandmotherly wolves and hike through this unbelievably old forest.
We would love to see your photos along the trails in the Hot Springs National Park in our Facebook Group, Arkansas Nature Lovers. You should join for your chance to be featured and to discover why there’s nothing better than Arkansas’ stunning nature.
We mentioned Hot Springs being the oldest national park in the nation. If you’d like to learn more about, you can read our feature article that explains how it’s actually older than Yellowstone.
