OVERNIGHT IN THE OZARKS
Explore the Richland Creek Wilderness Area for an outstanding Ozark backpacking trip.
Date: Thursday, November 13 – Friday, November 14
Backpack into the Richland Creek Wilderness Area for an outstanding Ozark overnight trip. This wilderness area has been described as “the most scenic of (Arkansas’) great wilderness areas because of the famous waterfalls, smooth sandstone boulders and emerald pools” (Tim Ernst; Arkansas Nature Lover’s Guidebook).
The hike will begin at Richland Creek Campground and follow the watershed upstream for approximately two miles, where camp will be set up. The afternoon will be set aside for hiking further upstream to view Richland Falls and Twin Falls, two of Arkansas’ most magnificent water features. For those more daring (and if time allows) there will be an opportunity to explore the natural area by exploring the area in multiple directions.
The hike will be somewhat difficult as there are few developed trails and two potentially significant creek crossings. However, the trip will be well worth it! Please plan to bring your own gear (pack, clothing, tent, etc.). If you do not have gear, trip organizers have a limited amount that could be borrowed. Please mark your gear status on the registration form.
