That One Time I Drove to Arkansas For a Day

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.

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. Fall Adventures / Whitaker Point / for the love of nikeFall Adventures / Whitaker Point / for the love of nike

Are you familiar with the Midwest? Where should I go hiking next?

  1. Nice post. I’m from the Midwest – entire life. I’ve been around the southern parts of Missouri a fair amount and really love that area. My opinion is, you can’t really go wrong with Missouri/Arkansas area for great Midwest nature experiences. I live in Illinois and there are some great places here, however, much of it is very flat for crops. I enjoyed this post – Happy exploring.
