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.

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.
