Lake Fort Smith to Whiterock Mountain: Visit this 16.6 mile trail that has a whopping 2923 elevation gain. The springs are very pretty and the campsites are perfect for picnicking before you return to your Lake Fort Smith State Park cabin.
Western Terminus to Frog Bayou: Start at the visitor center, pass a quaint waterfall and skirt the lake to Frog Bayou. The trail can be inaccessible when the water is high and there is position ivy that lines the path.
This is a relaxing walk that is not steep and is only a little more than two miles. You may see some turkeys, squirrels or other wild animals.
This hike is best from autumn to spring so that you can see the waterfalls better. The footing is unpaved stone so to be sure to bring strong boots.
