  Eagle Rock Loop Trail Map
by Astrobuck

This is the longest loop hike in Arkansas. It is actually a combination of three trails (the Little Missouri, the Athens-Big Fork, and part of the Viles Branch Horse Trail). It loops through a large chunk of the Ouachita National Forest southwest of Hot Springs. I hiked this on a backpacking trip last year, and let me tell you, it is pretty difficult. We camped for 2 nights, one night was chilly and rainy. Don't attempt unless you are in pretty good shape. If not, i would suggest you camp more than 3 nights. This map pic isn't very good, but there is a downloadable map at the website below.
