The Green River Game Lands is a beautiful, rugged, natural area of forests, rivers, gorges, and hillsides consisting of more than 10,000 acres along the Green River in Henderson and Polk counties. The area is owned by the state and managed for the primary purpose of wildlife conservation and management, which means that fishing, hunting, and trapping are allowed.
All the trails have a sense of the wild—although there are trailhead signs, the trails are not blazed. One of the best trails for dogs is the Pulliam Creek Trail, and one of the best times to hike is in spring, when it is not yet hot and the wildflowers are blooming in abundance.
