Smith Creek Preserve Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Judging from the strata making up the sedimentary blu?s bordering Smith Creek, there’s nothing new about this area geologically, but public access to this beautiful location is new. Thanks to Marty and Elise Roenigk, who transferred their property to the Nature Conservancy in 2005 to establish Smith Creek Preserve, this area will be protected from development.

This is a new trail and a real jewel of Arkansas. After my first hike through, I said it was like Hurricane Creek on steroids. The Hurricane Creek Wilderness Area is a section on the Ozark Highlands Trail that involves at least two days of hiking to complete. Smith Creek has similar scenic qualities but condensed into a much smaller area, making it the ideal day hike."
