The Sinking Stream Trail is a new trail at Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area, in Benton County, Arkansas. It does not yet have any signage, but it is a nice little nature walk.

The .6-mile loop trail follows a short section of West Fork Little Clifty Creek.

There are several footbridges on the trail. At least one of them obviously predates the new trail.
