J.B. Weisenfels has lived in rural Arkansas for three decades. She is a writer, a mom, and a graduate student. She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
Sometimes it’s nice to climb around the rim of a mountain, but you can’t unlock all the secrets of that mountain unless you see it from another angle. One way to do that is to hike through a canyon, and the best place in Arkansas to do that is Canyon Trail. Located in Petit Jean State Park, Canyon Trail is a fantastic way to experience all the beauty Petit Jean has to offer.
You’ll find Canyon Trail in Petit Jean State Park at 1285 Petit Jean Mountain Road in Morrilton. Directions are here.
