Hiking the Rim Trail

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Betsy and I visit Mt. Nebo State Park in Arkansas early each year.  We have many reasons for continuing to go there:  a beautiful little cabin that we get each year, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, a peaceful and quiet atmosphere in which we can relax and enjoy each other’s company, and beautiful views.

Another thing we do its hike along the Rim Trail, which circles the mountain top just below the rim.  We don’t always hike all the way around the mountain, but we do cover most parts of the trail while we’re at Mt. Nebo.

There is access to the Rim Trail near our cabin, and the views beckons us each morning, as can be seen in the picture above.


On a clear day we can see Mt. Magazine in the distance, another favorite place we like to visit.


When we hike from the cabin toward Sunset Point we pass this gnarled old tree standing guard along the trail.


With all the beautiful views along the Rim Trail there are times when we just have to stop and soak them all in.
