The Ancient Forest In Arkansas That’s Right Out Of A Storybook

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.
