The 6.8 mile loop trail system parallels the Talimena scenic drive. Traveling along in a forest of short-leaf pine, blackjack oak, post oak and black hickory, the day hiker will see interesting rock formations, a variety of plant and animal life, and a view of Ward Lake which once supplied the town of Mena with water. The trails have a moderate difficulty level and are popular with mountain bikers. Parking is available at the East End Visitor Station.
Directions: From State Hwy. 71 at Mena, take State Hwy. 88 north for two miles to the East End Visitor Information Center.
