Mount Nebo: Rim Trail Foggy Misty Photos September 2012

Rim Trail, Mount Nebo State Park

Yesterday afternoon, I hiked the Mount Nebo Rim Trail with my son and his girlfriend. (Mount Nebo State Park is near Russellville, Arkansas.) The Rim Trail is one of my favorite trails because of the many very nice views.

War Eagle Trail, Withrow Springs State Park

In June, I stopped at Withrow Springs State Park, near Huntsville, Arkansas, and hiked the War Eagle Trail. The trail is a 2-mile loop that mostly runs along War Eagle Creek.

The trail features some cool rock formations and a very nice overlook of War Eagle Creek. (There also are a couple of caves, but they are presently closed.)
