Farewell to Dave Hike! Lake Sylvia / Ouachita Trail to HWY 9 and back: 9 miles

One of the Little Rock Hikers leaders is moving away and we are having a farewell hike in Dave's (a.k.a. "bonus mile boy" :)  ) honor on Sunday May 26th.

We will start from 8 am at the parking lot just past the Lake Sylvia Recreational area (approximately 40 minutes outside of Little Rock off Hwy 10 headed towards Perryville).

This is a moderate to strenuous entirely trail hike depending on your endurance/fitness level of about 9 miles. There is not a lot of climb however, just spots with a lot of rocks. This time of year poison ivy does pop up along the trail so hiking pants are recommended.

Bring plenty of water, sunscreens and/or a hat, bug spray, and a snack or bag lunch as we will find a place to stop along the trail after the half way point. Also, there are no bathroom facilities on the route so please come prepared.

Very sad to see Dave go but glad we can have one more adventure with him! Contact Kimberly if you have questions: [masked].

    I have done something to my right foot and have a bruise on the underside of big toe that will make it difficult climbing over rocks. Hope all enjoy the hike take lots of pics.
