What spectacular views we saw! LOTS of hair pin turns and even saw some snow still accumulated on the ground! Nothing blooming just yet, but, in about a month, this will be fabulous!

The colors of the leaves were just turning and made for beautiful scenery. The scenic byway, Highway 7 was a most delightful day adventure across northern AR.

This was worth a short 6 mile drive east on Hwy 16 during our trip from Clarksville to Branson on scenic Hwy 7. The 2.2 mile RT walk to see the rocks and caves under them was enjoyable. The trees were just starting to show color, so end of Oct or early Nov are probably ideal for optimal fall colors.... More

My absolute favorite place in the world. A must see in the fall when the leaves are changing. Or, a drive to Ponca to see the Elk and stay in a unique cabin in a cave is also a must. Great fishing too!

The scenic area consists of 2 hiking trails Pedestal Rocks (2.2 mi) and Kings Bluff (1.7 mi). Regardless of your hiking skills, it's worth the trip. You will see unique formations, called pedestals that were formed by weathering. Kings Bluff features a waterfall that flows over the ledge. The trail is located at the top of the Illinois Bayou River... More

I spend a lot of time in this area looking for places to hunt, fish and just relax. Dirt roads are inviting to me so 4 wheel drive is my security blanket and used when necessary.

Main Forest and trail options were huge. However unlike other outdoor parks, on-the-spot camping information and maps/directions were not readily available. Gas stations are old and spread out far from each other. Most importantly, Diesel is just as in demand in this place as Gasoline, so one can easily mistake one fuel pump for another when fueling a vehicle (so... More

A beautiful change of scenery from Texas. It was quiet, secluded, and a rugged breath of fresh air from everyday stresses.
