Exploring Arkansas September 2009
Horseshoe Canyon Rock Climbing, Falcon Bottoms Natural Area, Bayou Bluff
One of the best places to go rock climbing east of the Rockies happens to be at Horseshoe Canyon Ranch near Jasper-and it's where we'll take you to conquer the rock ! Visiting one of the many Natural Areas under the protection of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission is a great way to explore a "wilder" version of the Natural State. Falcon Bottoms Natural Area near Magnolia with Bayou Dorcheat, offers a unique adventure in the state's original wild landscape. Bayou Bluff in the Ozark National Forest near Hector is one of those tucked away gems with picturesque bluffs, a cool mountain stream and breathtaking scenery.
