Wildlife sanctuary. Do not pick the flowers. Do not run this trail if it is not meant to be.

Runner Notes

The two loops combine for 1.5 miles of serendipitous trail.

Description

Do not fret! The trail is 100 times better than the movie and by far Arkansas' best trail named after a John Cusack movie.
This interpretive trail comes with two loops for a combined 1.5 miles of serendipitous beauty. It is pristinely maintained and offers the runner a scrumptious bit of respite from the otherwise hilly elevations of the Ouachitas. A pond, a bench, and grand view bejewel the trail marvelously, keeping the perfect balance of feng and shui as the trail sways through the pine and hardwood.

Sadly, the highly anticipated "Say Anything Trail" is still under construction in Montgomery county.

Flora & Fauna

Immaculately groomed crushed slate trail, white tail, and hardwood. North American Yeti sightings rare in fall and winter months.
