Take An Easy Out-And-Back Trail To Enter Another World At Crystal Vista In Arkansas

If you’re needing a moment to escape to the woods and want to skip any potentially crowded state parks, a drive to Crystal Vista is in order. This abandoned crystal quarry has a lovely little trail that’s glittered with quartz! Let’s head to the Ouachita National Forest for a sparkly break.
