Alum Cove National Recreation Trail

  On the trail
Says Mike Hall

The trail below the natural bridge is covered in dead trees due to the winter ice storm. The trailhead down to the bridge has been cleared. Memorial Day weekend 2009.

Other than that, the trail offers sandstone caves, wet weather waterfall, small stream, and one of the largest natural bridges in the country. You actually walk across the bridge and follow the trail underneath for a panoramic view of the bridge.
    Very easy hike!
Says Mike Hall

Some of my extended family and I went out over the weekend of 1/17/2009 for a birthday get-away for a nephew. We stayed in an awesome cabin. Here is one picture we took while hiking the Alum
Cove Trail. (error while uploading picture)

Arkansas is a great outdoors state. Alum Cove National Recreation Trail is located quite a long drive from Harrison but many people like to hike here to be close to nature. There are many hiking trails in the Boston Mountains where beautiful scenery awaits you.
Spending too much time indoors got you down? No problem, Alum Cove National Recreation Trail in Newton County, Arkansas is just
 
what you need. You can run the rapids of Shop Creek - West Fork close to Alum Cove National Recreation Trail, and Sandy Springs Hollow is also a glorious place to look at. Whohoo, so much enjoyable stuff in one place! The Boston Mountains is excellent! Long Branch is a good whitewater spot next to Alum Cove National Recreation Trail, and Ozark National Forest is both magnificent and gorgeous.
