We typically do not get a lot of ice and snow in the winter here in west Arkansas. When we do get snow, I love the chance to take some winter shots at natural sites.

Natural Dam Falls is a cool waterfall in northern Crawford County in the Ozark National Forest. It is a 187-foot-wide natural wall of rock that spans the width of Mountain Fork Creek.

As I note here, the falls is easy to get to.

The Rim Trail on White Rock Mountain (2,200 feet elevation) in the Ozark National Forest (Franklin County) is one of my favorite short trails.

It’s only 2 miles long, but this trail has amazing views from nearly the entire trail as it circles the mountain.

These are some videos I took when I visited the falls on November 17.

The Rim Trail on White Rock Mountain in the Ozark National Forest about 20 miles north of Mulberry is an awesome trail, and it is not difficult. It is a 1.9-mile loop with less than 100 feet net elevation change.

The Rim Trail is over 2200 feet above sea level, and almost the entire trail has amazing vista views of the surrounding Ozark mountains.

Getting to White Rock Mountain

To get to White Rock Mountain from the south, take Exit 24 from I-40. If you are coming from the Fayetteville-Rogers area, I suggest taking I-49 south and then take I-40 east to Exit 24.

At Exit 24, get on Arkansas Highway 215 heading north.
