Hobbs Conservation National Park - Arkansas

Pigeon Root Trail & Water Mill

rain 16 °C

Today in spite of the greyish not so appealing weather, we decided to venture outside and do one of the many trails in the Hobbs Conservation National Park, which is the largest and the first national park of Arkansas....

The trail is 4.2m with no difficulty and very pretty scenery, with little streams, view points to Beaver Lake, trail through the forest as a single track and lots and lots of wild flowers..

The trail first follows as stream and meanders through the woods...

It then comes onto a lovely viewpoint of Beaver Lake.. and the follow the river until it joins back to the start of the trail...

After the trail we were ravenous and decided to go and eat at the water mill on the river which is supposed to be a lovely working mill where they do their own flowers and grains etc....

So we had lunch there and played a while... the problem was that the water levels were too high for the mill to actually work so we now have to come back another day!!!!
