Should I go hiking in winter in Arkansas?

Absolutely! There’s nothing like bundling up and hitting the trails in Arkansas in the winter. While our trails are beautiful year-round, there’s something magical about wandering through a trail freshly blanketed in snow. In Jasper you’ll find the Triple Falls Trail, a great little trail that features multiple waterfalls which are simply mesmerizing if you catch it with icicles coming from the fall. If you want to feel like you’re on top of the world, head over to Ponca where you’ll find the Hawsbill Crag, one of the most beautiful scenic views around.
