This is a ruggedly beautiful trail atop Rich Mountain, with superlative views of the Ouachita Mountains. Queen Wilhelmina State Park is, perhaps, the most romantic hiking area in Arkansas—and not just because one of the trails is named Lover’s Leap. The park’s lofty, windswept heights could transform a hard-bitten cynic into a writer of Gothic novels. The spell is first cast with the trip up to the park along Arkansas Highway 88, known more fittingly as Talimena Scenic Drive. The byway’s many overlooks present visitors with unforgettable images that showcase the splendor of the Ouachita Mountains in sunlight and in shadow.
