Oh, happy day! You can once again enjoy hiking Arkansas' most popular trail---the Lost Valley Trail near Ponca!
The National Park Service has announced that most of the trail has been adequately stabilized for foot traffic. The uppermost section of trail, however, remains closed until further repairs can be made. Also, the entire trail will remain under repair for a few more weeks, but the NPS felt the progress made thus far was suitable for visitor safety.
So, bust out those hiking boots and the kiddos and make tracks for Ponca this weekend. Also, with warm weather predicted, a last dip in the Steel Creek swimming hole might even be in order!
