12 Arkansas Forests You Absolutely Have To Explore This Fall
With nearly 19 million forested acres, over half of the Natural State is covered in trees. In a few weeks, all those trees are going to transform into a technicolor dreamscape, and there’s no better place to see that transformation than from the inside of all that forested land. On this list you’ll find 12 spots that are perfect ways to enjoy the spectacular fall colors, but I’ve got some extra advice for you on this point: drive, walk, or bike to the nearest publicly accessible forest. You won’t regret exploring all those wonderful autumn trees from under the patchwork canopy they make.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
