The TrailBlazers Hiking Club is a group based in Fort Smith, Arkansas, dedicated to enjoying the outdoors in the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains of western Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. THCFS schedules several hikes a month, some long and some short, some difficult and some more laid-back. Some of us have hiked for years and some just started, but we all enjoy the outdoors. If this describes you and you're in the area, you're welcome in our group!

Twenty-five TrailBlazers, including several newcomers and 4 canines, made the short drive to Lee Creek with hike leaders Judith and Ed for our annual Post-Thanksgiving Turkey Trot. Although skies were gray and overcast, it turned out to be a great day for hiking even if we didnít manage to work off all the calories we wolfed down in the last few days!
The trail features remnants of buildings from a pioneer settlement on these hills as well as several graves, some marked and some not. Someone had thoughtfully placed some flags, no doubt in honor of Veterans Day, on the graves of some old soldiers from a bygone era.
On the trail we had a fine view of the Lee Creek Reservoir and Lee Creek itself with its aquamarine waters. Then we climbed up the crack in the rock and checked out the crevices on top. Alas, the falls were not flowing, but that was no big surprise. All too soon our hike was over. Letís hope for good weather for our hike at Cove Lake next week.
