Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Rush is an Arkansas ghost town. It was a mining community that began in the 1880s and thrived through the 1920s because of its rich deposits of zinc. Zinc was used to protect metal from corrosion and in the manufacture of copper and brass. Rush was most active during World War I, when demand for zinc peaked."
