Our spring weekend trip will be April 12-14. We will be traveling to Jasper, Arkansas and hiking trails along the Buffalo National River. A final determination of the trails hasn’t been made, but you can expect something like this:

Friday afternoon – 4-5 miles

Saturday – There will be a long hike of 8-9 miles with a shorter option for those who choose it.

Sunday morning – 4 miles

There are a variety of accommodations in Jasper, most of them rather small. There are inns, motels, cabins and camping. If you are thinking of going, it would be a good idea to start thinking about where you want to stay and making reservations. This is not a complete list of places, but it will give you an idea of what is available. The first three are in Jasper, the others are a bit out of town.
