»CANCELLED - Eagle Rock Loop Backpack TripCANCELLED - Eagle Rock Loop Backpack TripLOCAL OUTINGS THROUGH APRIL 12 HAVE BEEN CANCELLED AND MAY BE RESCHEDULED AFTER THAT DATE. Backpack for 3 days on the longest loop trail in Arkansas. A combination of parts of the Little Missouri Trail, the Athens-Big Fork Trail and the Viles Branch Trail, the Eagle Rock Loop Trail crosses the Little Missouri River multiple times and travels over nine mountains. The hike will combine rugged hill climbs through mixed hardwood and pine forests with strolls along crystal clear streams.  It is arguably one of the best hikes in the Ouachita Mountains. Points of interest include Little Missouri Falls, Spirit Rock Vista, Eagle Rock Vista and Winding Stairs, among others. Participants should have some backpacking experience for this 27-mile hike.  This is a strenuous trip due to elevation changes along the Athens-Big Fork Trail and the amount of miles covered. Drive to the area (about 4 hours from Dallas) on Thursday.  We'll hike Friday, Saturday and half of Sunday.

»CANCELLED - Riverbottom and Crosstimber Trails at Fort Worth Nature CenterCANCELLED - Riverbottom and Crosstimber Trails at Fort Worth Nature CenterLOCAL OUTINGS THROUGH APRIL 12 HAVE BEEN CANCELLED AND MAY BE RESCHEDULED AFTER THAT DATE. Spring is here and nature is waking from her winter slumber. We will walk the Riverbottom Trail in the morning. This is a bottomland forest trail following the West Fork of the Trinity River at times. We'll pass a small bluestem meadow and end up at the marsh boardwalk. The boardwalk is a good spot to see waterfowl. Then back to the trailhead for lunch. We’ll have lunch on the banks of the Trinity River or at the visitor center. After lunch we'll walk the Crosstimber Trail, a loop hike through another bottomland forest. The trees will be greening up, so both trails promise to be beautiful spring walks. Bring lunch and two liters of water. And it’s time for the insect repellent. Bathrooms are at the starting and ending points of the walks. $5 per person. Limit 10 people.

»CANCELLED - Weekend Beginner Backpack Trip in the Caney Creek Wilderness, ArkansasCANCELLED - Weekend Beginner Backpack Trip in the Caney Creek Wilderness, ArkansasThis trip has been CANCELLED. Hopefully, we will be able to reschedule for sometime this fall. Hike one of the most scenic trails in Arkansas, in the Caney Creek Wilderness of west central Arkansas. Saturday we’ll enjoy the views from the ridgetop Buckeye Mountain Trail. We'll end up at a beautiful campsite near a waterfall. Sunday we’ll hike out along the creek bottoms of the Caney Creek Trail. With any luck there will be lots of wildflowers in bloom. This trip is rated moderate and is suitable for beginners in good shape. Both days cover about 4 1/2 miles, but Saturday includes an 500 foot uphill section. Preference will be given to graduates of our Backpacking 101 class.
