Sugar Creek: Second Low-Water Bridge above Knopper's Ford to Jack Creek Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"The headwaters of Sugar Creek are east of US 71 and north of AR 248 near White Oak Mountain in the Ouachita National Forest. Sugar Creek flows east, then turns abruptly north near Bee Mountain. The gradient of the creek increases to almost 50 feet per mile, and a class III whitewater stream is born. Paddlers can expect a very slender creek that weaves through a narrow gorge. Downed trees are a problem due to ice storms in recent years. Sugar Creek has some significant hazards, including one of the most dangerous low-water bridges in the area. Paddling with someone who knows the run and can identify the hazards will add a significant margin of safety."
