I had a cool visit to Mt. Nebo State Park with my son and his girlfriend a few weeks ago. I posted here the cell phone video I took of the waterfall. (When flowing, it is located on the Gum Springs Trail, just a little bit below the rim level at the mountain’s south end.)
Saturday, I hiked another 5 miles of the Ouachita Trail; this time in Section 3.
This was a pretty cool hike because it was the first time I have come across a waterfall on the Ouachita Trail (or in any national forest for that matter).
I began (and parked) at the Foran Gap trailhead on Highway 71, between Waldron and Mena, Arkansas. From there I hiked west about 5 miles to MM 63. Originally, I intended to go just to MM 64, but it appears that there is no marker at MM 64.
There is a marker at MM 63, but it looks like it was written with a ball point pen. (There have been problems lately with some of the OT mile markers disappearing.)
I refer to the part of the trail I hiked Saturday as “03-H” and “03-I.”
