There’s A Little Slice Of Paradise Hiding Right Here In Arkansas… And You’ll Want To Visit

Within the Boston Mountains sits a wilderness area that master of wild places, Tim Ernst, calls “One of the most scenic areas in this country. And I do mean the United States.” Backpacker Magazine hails it as “Arkansas’s Waterfall Paradise.” They’re not talking about one of our more popular state parks, either. They’re referring to the Richland Creek Wilderness, and they’re absolutely right to call it a paradise.

To find this little patch of heaven, click here for a map. If you’ve decided you absolutely must see this for yourself you’re not wrong, but please do remember to come prepared. This is a wilderness, after all.
