Hiking & Backpacking

Explore Arkansas on foot and experience the beauty and majesty of The Natural State at every corner. Venture into the woods for a night (or week) with trails that range from one mile long to more than 200 miles. Hikers will enjoy extensive trail systems that provide opportunities to explore lush forests, scenic river valleys, and rugged mountain terrains. The Ozark Mountains in the northern part of the state boast a network of trails offering stunning vistas, while the Ouachita Mountains in the west provide challenging routes through dense woodlands. No matter your skill-level, Arkansas has a hike for everyone.
