I have a new number one location on my list of favorite places to hike in Arkansas. The Richland Creek Wilderness area is kind of a treasure trove of trails and “make your own trails” unlike anything I have come across throughout the Ozarks and Ouachitas so far. My son and I took off for what was going to be the final section of the OHT in the last week of December 2013. As we drove into the area however; our plans changes. Rather than a hurried 4 day 40 mile hike we opted for an easy multi day exploration of the Richland Creek Wilderness area.
