This trail loops up along the ridge of Short Mountain and shares part of its path with the Ouachita Trail. The Jessieville Ranger District, together with its sister office, the Winona Ranger District, was recognized in 1995 as the Southern Region “Ranger District of the Year” for its leadership in natural resource management. Knowledge is the cornerstone of a good environmental program, and the staff at the Jessieville Visitor Center are eager to share their considerable knowledge with the public.
A comprehensive set of Audubon field guides about various flora and fauna occupy a prominent place in the office. Even going to the rest room is an edifying experience because the walls are lined with posters identifying insects, birds, trees, and leaves.
