Exploring Arkansas July 2011
Little Missouri Falls, Lorance Creek Natural Area, Roth Prairie Natural Area, Cedar Falls Hike
Little Missouri Falls is located in one of the most scenic areas of the Ouachita National Forest in western Arkansas-in fact, it's a special area that almost became a national park. The Lorance Creek Natural Area between Little Rock and Pine Bluff is a dense swamp with a boardwalk which makes it quite ideal to explore without any difficulty. The Roth Prairie Natural Area in the heart of the Grand Prairie is a great example of what was once the vast tallgrass prairie. Hiking to one of the premier waterfalls in the state, Cedar Falls at Petit Jean Mountain State Park is a must do activity for anyone living in The Natural State.
