Known by locals as "The Little Grand Canyon," these unique sand and rock formations are quite unusual for Southern Arkansas.
Located at the edge of White Oak Lake in Chidester, very few people, other than the locals, even know this exist. Someone told me about hiking there and I had to go check it out.
There are worn trails for hiking all around the area and I hear it is a favorite swimming place for the locals in the summer.
Drive to the end of the road and park in the area just inside the woods. It is a very short hike to the area. You can get down to the area easily if you keep walking until you see a trail that is not very steep. The first three trails down to the area are very steep!
Look for this motorcycle where your turn off of Highway 24 onto Ouachita Rd. Our GPS took us past it and wanted us to take a trail through the woods! 😐
