You Wouldn’t Expect This Tiny Arkansas Town To Have Such A Hidden Treasure
Unfortunately, it’s easy to skip over Cave Springs while traversing the NWA area but today the tiny town is getting a well deserved shout out. The tiny town is home to the Illinois River Watershed Sanctuary, a preserved natural area that protects Cave Springs’ cave spring. Let’s take a detour and take the unbelievably pretty trail around this watershed.
