We will hike Bear Hollow Trail at Mt. Magazine. The trail Follows the upper rim of Bear Hollow from the northern trailhead at Ark. 309 just below the horse camp to the Benefield Picnic Area. Points of interest include WPA steps, Sunrise Rock, Inspiration Point, Bear Head Bluff, and Shoal Creek. Some of the best scenery on the mountain is found along this trail. It crosses several wet-weather creeks which lead to beautiful waterfalls. The upper part of the hollow has never been logged and is some of the last remaining virgin hardwood forest in Arkansas. Hiking distance will be about 3 miles rated moderate. Sign up if you plan to attend. Bring lunch and water.
Meet at Home Depot parking lot in Fort Smith on the corner by the stop light. We will leave at 8 AM so please arrive about 10 minutes early to form carpools. Gloria is hike leader.
