I’ve lived in Kansas City, MO for a year now and I’ve had the itch to discover the nature in this neck of the woods. Last weekend, I made the long trek (5.5 hours in a car) to the Ozark National Forest in the Ozark Mountains.
Here it is! Whitacker Point in Arkansas. The hike itself was very easy and should only take an hour or so (if you’re not taking tons of photos). It was the drive to the trailhead that I was unprepared for. If you’re visiting, try to take a car that can handle bumpy dirt roads. My car was not happy winding its way through the forest.
Are you familiar with the Midwest? Where should I go hiking next?
