I graduated from Uni recently, and a lot of local alumni who were in the mountaineering club help put together trips over holidays. I was thinking The Ozarks could be fun over thanksgiving (Wednesday-Sunday) but I’ve never spent much time in Arkansas. Any standout trails or attractions? Generally we like to bring a few inexperienced but eager members along with oldfags, so harder trails are fine.
Any recommendations for longer trails that could be stretched into a few days? Would it be worth the extra detour to Hot Springs NP?
