Reviews

Mossy Bluff trail

We have been touring around the delta--we moved to the Ozarks ten years ago and wanted to see some other parts of Arkansas. It was hot today, but cool in the woods of the Mossy Bluff trail, almost silent once we veered away from the road; just a little mockingbird song. Enormous oaks, pines, hickories, and rocks the size of battleships. A wonderful diversion.
