Description: This loop trail connects two of the more popular Forest Service recreation areas: Shores Lake and White Rock Mountain. It offers an excellent weekend hike up a beautiful creek drainage to the top of spectacular White Rock Mountain, and returns via another creek drainage. Camping is open along the trails; or there are campgrounds available at each end. White Rock also has cabins or a multi-person lodge available for rent. For reservations, call (501) 369-4128. Plan on spending the night on the mountain; White Rock offers one of the best spots in the state to watch the sunset.
The Shores Lake Trailhead is located at the back of the Shores Lake Campground on a spur road. A portion of the trail follows the Ozark Highlands Trail.
